She rocks another baby...
hums an age old lullaby
She hopes no one is watching
as with thanks, she starts to cry
Remembering the time
when the babies were her own
And her mother told her gently
too soon they would be grown
Lots of bedtime stories,
skinned knees, and tears to dry
Teddy bears, toy trucks and dolls
and kites up in the sky
First days of school, first loves,
the proms, the wedding days
Sand castles and snowball fights
and teaching them to pray
Now, as she holds her grandchild
and gives thanks unto the Lord
She knows to be a Grandma
is motherhood's reward! ~Anon.
There’s holes in the floor of Heaven
and Gramma's tears are pourin’ down
that’s how you know she’s watching
wishing she could be around;
And sometimes when I’m lonely
I remember she can see
Cause there’s holes in the floor of Heaven
and she’s watching over you and me.

Gramma I miss you and your warm, loving smile!
♥♥ Thank you to all who visit my Gramma's memorial. She played a huge part in my life and was very dear to me. Your tokens and comments help keep her memory alive. May God Bless all of you with good health and much happiness! ♥♥
