The Love of a Grandmother

My grandmother was very important to me. She made me fe el special and she showed it in many ways. She always thanked me for doing even very small things for her which I was glad to do. She never ridiculed me or called me names, or cussed me out. She was a good cook and she introduced me to crochet, cross stitching, and needlepoint. She taught me to show respect to others and to work hard at whatever I chose to do in life. She taught me to love others and to be appreciative of even the small things in life. She taught me to have faith in God and to always help others. She taught me table manners. As I look around in the restaurants at the way people eat their food- thank you for correcting my table manners. hahahaha I LOVE Y0U SO MUCH GRANDMOTHER SO SO MUCH! There is a special relationship that grandmothers have with granddaughters and I am crying right now as I remember all the sweet memories. thank you , grandmother for retiring early when my daddy was so sick and I really needed you there with me. You had a chance to transfer to Atlanta but instead you came home to be with me and those next twenty-eight yrs I had y0u were the happiest of my life. Thank you for staying with me and spending time with me. The other members of my family might forget y0u but I never will.
