A Mothers love comes from above and come's sometimes in the form of a Grandmother.
I came to her when she was 47
Her own children grown
the first child of her youngest son....



Grandma's love was something else


I don't think she ever though of herself first


It was so deep and even now


her memory has faded


and she sometimes doesn't remember


my name


I still see love


shining in her eyes.


 


A baby girl sick with pheumonia


she took me in


at 10 days old


her 47


some said, "to old"


All those late night feedings


must have been hard on her


getting up at dawn


to hicth-hike


to work by eight


She cleaned a bank


and later motel rooms


Did all she had to,


to make ends meet


Made sure there was always


shoes, clothes, and food to eat.


If times got tough


it wasn't past her to walk for miles


picking up pop bottles


to soothe the way


untill her next payday!


I know as I grew older


I gave her many a worried night


But I guess thats just kids


not always thinking about what's right


Through it all


she never gave up


she even held me tight


after terrible fights


I thought that the greatest gift she had gave


was taking me in....


but now I know,


It was her gift of


Love


Forgiveness


and


acceptance


Through those she taught me


how to be a Mother


I strive to be


and let my son's see


the influence


that my Grandmother


had on me.


It was her Love that saved me!

As a doting grandfather of two little girls this one touches my heart that this woman could love so much and mean so much obviously to you because of it. Great tribute to a special lady.

How splendid that God blessed you with her to care for you! It isn't until we have children ourselves that we can appreciate all they do for us. This is a beautifully written tribute to your precious grandmother Tina!

Love,

A grandmother's love truly is a wondrous thing, Tina. I grew up very luckily with both of my grandmothers living in the same building with us, and although they've been gone many years now, I, too, owe them a huge debt of gratitude for their undying love.
