-The old antique mirror Hung upon the bedroom wall It belong to my Grandma A wedding present from an in-law A well-loved and treasured gift once was shiny and brand new Now a reflection of the time past A cherished memory of Grandma that I knew The first memory of that old mirror was at a tender age of two with shiny eyes, I kissed the glass sweet, innocent pure and true Years went by, my Grandma aged I had a family of my own We stopped by to see her. The story she would tell. How Grandpa hung that mirror in the bedroom of this home We loved that old mirror. It belong to his grandma A wedding gift of priceless love meant more to us than gold. A hand me down, a family heir-loom, sweet memories untold as she beams with pride as her story would unfold The last time I saw that old mirror It was the day my Grandma died Sweet memories come rushing back, as tears filled my eyes. I love you grandma I said my last good-bye The old Antique mirror hung upon the bedroom wall It belong to my grandma A wedding present from an in-law A well- loved and treasured gift Once, it was shiny and brand new Now a reflection of the time past A cherishing memory of Grandma that I loved and knew 3-11-2021

Very enjoyable! Oh how we love our grandmas. One of mine, only once I was able to see her long gray hair that she kept rolled up. She had a cute little laugh.

Hello! Kim, It's wonderful to see you smile. Our grandmothers are adored by us. That is why we treasure the belongings and memories that belonged to them. My grandmothers both wore their hair up. It had to be the fashion at the time. Thank you, Kim... Blessings ~ Debra
