“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul routinely professes his love for his “angelic goddess” wife on Instagram, but yesterday it was another “beautiful” woman he had on his mind: his 94-year-old grandmother.

“It’s amazing what your heart does when it is jolted,” Paul began the heartfelt post, showing him stroking his grandmother’s face in the hospital. 

It's amazing what your heart does when it is jolted. When news floods in and panic takes over. Emotions run wild. The beautiful woman I am looking at is my grandmother (my moms mom) and she is turning 94 today. She is easily the strongest woman I have ever met. Example, she got kicked by a bull once and broke her hip (which she had to replace) and never complained about any sort of pain. The other day she was walking to let her dog out and next thing she knew she was on the ground. Her back splintered in 6 places. Right before this photo was taken she had her daughter Darla (my mom) call each of her grandchildren so she could say goodbye. She said that it was time for her to sleep and go see grandpa. She would always tell us "I love you all the same. No favorites." After she said goodbye to me I packed a bag and went straight to the airport. She is now recovering back at home telling jokes and resting a lot. She is a fighter. A beautiful fighter. Thank you grandma for everything. Anyone who is reading this and are lucky enough to have grandparents in their life...call them. Let them know how much you love them. Also, please send warm thoughts out towards my beautiful grandmother. She's the best. Love to you all.❤️👵

The actor recounted how his grandma was out for a walk recently with her dog when she took a nasty fall, splintering her back in six places and landing herself in the hospital. Grandma proceeded to call all of her grandkids to say her goodbyes. “She would always tell us, ‘I love you all the same. No favorites’,” he wrote. 

But ever a fighter, grandma is now recuperating back at home, luckily. The accident, however, prompted the actor to remind everyone how precious life is.

“Anyone who is reading this and are lucky enough to have grandparents in their life... call them. Let them know how much you love them,” Paul wrote. 

A beautiful grandmother and a beautiful reminder, indeed, that we should never forget our elders, especially around the holidays.
