Calling All Grammas

1gramma (930x1280)

Slender stature about 5 foot-four
Smiles flashing love to every child
Twinkle in eyes probing each heart
Hands nursing many a child’s hurt
Arms protecting little ones from harm
Vibrant aprons holding treats to eat
Making the finest filled cookies about
Doting time for grandchildren at play
Nurturing interest in outdoor fun
Finding those lucky 4-leaf clovers
Picking lilacs and planting those pansies
Joyfully sharing antique doll collection
Letting grandchildren help with chores
Always dressed prim proper and clean
Truly loved her family and they knew it–
Thank you Lord for such a rich treasure
God’s angel in disguise and homeward bound
Far too early–I still lament her passing.
