What Is a Grandma?

A grandma is warm hugs and sweet memories. She remembers all of your accomplishments and forgets all of your mistakes. She is someone you can tell your secrets and worries to, and she hopes and prays that all your dreams come true . She always loves you, no matter what. She can see past temper tantrums and bad moods, and makes it clear that they don't affect how precious you are to her. She is an encouraging word and a tender touch. She is full of proud smiles. She is the one person in the world who loves you with all her heart, who remembers the child you were and cherishes the person you've become. ~Barbara Cage~

Grandmothers Defined

The following are some excerpts from a wonderful little book entitled "To a very special Grandmother" written by Pam Brown, b.1928, © Helen Exley 1991 -

 

I thought I had forgotten how to hold a baby ~ but my arms remember.

Grandmothers are the people who take delight in hearing babies breathing into the telephone.

 

It is remarkable how, overnight, a quiet mature lady can learn to sit cross-legged on the floor and play a tin drum, quack like a duck, sing all the verses of The Twelve Days Of Christmas, make paper flowers, draw pigs, and sew on the ears of severely-injured teddy bears.

Grandmas don't just say "that's nice" - they reel back and roll their eyes and throw up their hands and smile. You get your money's worth out of grandmas.

Those gasps of astonishment, those shrieks of pleasure, those sighs of delight, lost long ago when your children grew wise and worldly ~ are suddenly given back to you by your grandchildren. What seems to be the same small hands clutch yours, dragging you from one excitement to another ~ "Look! Oh, look! Come ON!"

Grandmas bring flowers when your pet dies...and sit and cry with you.

All grandmothers like letters. Even if they just consist of a squiggle and a dirty finger mark.

Grandmothers are good at sitting on the floor to play, but they can be terribly difficult to get upright again.

 

EVERYTIME I READ SOME OF THESE WORDS A LITTLE SMILE APPEARS ON MY FACE.   A LITTLE FLUTTER IN MY HEART BEATS WHEN I THINK OF MY 3 GRANDCHILDREN. THEY ARE NOW, 14, 10, AND 6..MY YOUNGEST IS AUTISTIC AND I WONDER IN AMAZEMENT EVERY TIME HE TRIES TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO ME THAT IS WAY OVER MY HEAD, LIKE ALL THE WORKINGS OF A COMPUTER, ANYTHING ELECTRICAL, ETC...MY 2ND OLDEST IS MY RED-HEADED WILD CHILD . HE HAS SO MUCH ENERGY AND NEVER SLOWS DOWN. LOVES PLAYING WITH HIS SOCCER  AND BASEBALL TEAMS. MY OLDEST WILL START HIGH SCHOOL THIS YEAR..HE HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH WITH HIS KROHNS DISEASE..HE ALSO PLAYS A MEAN SAXOPHONE, LOVES BEING A BOY SCOUT AND WANTS TO BE A SCOUT LEADER ONE DAY..I HAVE BEEN VERY BLESSED WITH BEING A PART OF THEIR LIVES. AS TIME GOES ON I WILL CONTINUE POSTING DIFFERENT STORIES OF MY LIFE WITH THEM AS I WAS DOING..I LOVE TO SHARE..UNTIL THEN....
