I miss grandma’s house after school, grandma’s house after church, grandma’s house after a long days work. I miss them because they remind me of my grandma. Lemonade, cookie jars, jeopardy, aloe plants, banana pudding, ice tea, patsy cline and diet coke etc. all have memories that make me think of my Grandma.
Grandma is always giving
Here take this pillow take some food “take what you want.”
She wants you to have it
She just wants you to be happy.
Are you hungry? Let me make you something.
I am not hungry grandma. I say.
Grandma says: Let me make you something anyway.
Straight to the point is her way
Stop chewing your nails stop eating so much chocolate
Your face is breaking out! No girl is going to like that!
She cries when we leave, and cries when we arrive
Tears of joy and sadness she cannot hide.
Three words that define her are
Self-less, supportive, and loving
Grandma is the rock in our family
I want to tell you
We love you!
