And Grandmaw was Right

As I Look Back Upon My Past Youth...... Now Really Realizing of All Them Truths............ Of What My Grandmaw Said,So Long Ago.......... And How Her Words of Wisdom...The Truth I Now Sow.......... From"Whores Be In They Gowns All Day........" And; "It Ain't Worth ****....If You Don't Do Your Work,The Right Way.......!" And..."Let God Deal with 'The Wicked',As He Sees Right." And Now,After All these Years,I Now Realized That My Grandmaw was Right.........! "You Got to Get Up Real Early,In the Morn..... To Get Everything Done,Before Ten in the Morn......." And "Never,Ever,Disrespect....Even to 'The Folks Have Done You Wrong.........' Let 'THE LORD' Deal with Them....for Good,Strong Faith,will Make You Strong.......!" And "OLD FASHIONED WAYS..'Will Never Go Out of Style'......" That's How Grandmaw Always Said,with that Sweet,Yet Stern Smile.......... I Can't Believe I am Quoting THE SAME THINGS,SHE SAID TO ME........ Though, Grandmaw has been gone,for over A Quarter Century............ But,My Grandmaw was Right,Even to This Day................. For I KNOW that Even In HARD TIMES,GOD WILL ALWAYS FIND A MUCH BETTER WAY......... Grandmaw Was Tough,And Strong as Brandy........... Still,Sweet and Delicate,Lke Rocky Road Candy............ With The Best Advice She Had,Passed Onto Me........... I Became "THE BIG MOMMA....'I CAME TO BE'..........!" Just Like "Life for Me Ain't Been No Crystal Stair........." I Must Remain Strong,Like Grandmaw Did,Long Ago,Then...For Now Come There... Will Be One More "BIG MOMMA..'After Me'....." Though,Not from my loins,Eventually............. Unto "THE FUTURE 'BIG MOMMAS-TO-BE'..........!"
