Mom, Tell Me About Grandmommy

Mom, This photo of Grandmommy has been in my room since I was born I know how she looked, but tell me waht she was like What did her laugh sound like? What did she say when she tucked you in at night? Did she like to cook? When you were bad, did she give you THAT look? What made her sad? How long was she married to Granddad? How did her hugs feel? Did she like to wear high heels? Janessa, I could answer all your questions one by one However, the easiest way for this to be done Come, let me hold you in my arms Yes, now see in the mirror there? All your answers are here For you see, you are just like Grandmommy Just let me hug you another minute
