All kids should have a Grandmother like mine. She was a loving spirit and never too busy for me. She never got mad or screamed. She never grew tired of listening and never turned me away. She loved the Christmas season and loved cooking tasty treats. She always had the best advice. She had the best goose-feathered pillows to fall asleep in. She loved to write and journal her daily encounters. Her manners were impeccable and lived as if she wrote the "Emily Post" series. She was the epitome of a lady. She was polite, graceful, confident, quiet and peaceful. She could effortlessly host a dinner or could simply welcome family and friends and you would feel you were at a feast fit for a queen because she was in attendance. Having her attention was like having God's grace shine just on you and somehow warm you from the inside out. I miss Grandma. May God bless and welcome her into His arms in her journey ahead.
