What Grandma Was To Us
She was the backbone of this family.
She was the listener
And at times the worrier
Everyone of us from time to time
Leaned on her
She was a good friend
a good wife, mother and sister, and especially
a good grandmother.
She did what she could and sometimes
what no other person could or would.
She cooked, cleaned, and raised at
Sometime or another her grandchildren.
She was a giver
And thought of others before herself
There were very few times she ever told
Us grand kids NO
She was a pleaser
And a peace keeper
NO ONE MESSED WITH MA!
She loved us all and you knew it without her saying it
She showed it with her actions
She was a quilter
And that was what she loved to do
She loved quilting as much as she loved
Us, but not more than she loved the Lord
She was an avid reader
She kept books stacked around her bed, and night stand
We love her and will miss her,
But her strength will stay with us
What shoes no one can fill
What a roll model she was
And continues to be.
We can all learn by the example she set.
