A Grandmother’s Love

Memories I have

You holding my hand

Crossing the street

Looking left and right

Counting acorns and

Pine cones on the ground

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Being together

Sitting at the table

Family, food, fun

Your presence was everything

We still share time

I talk to you every day

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Your love was

Kind, generous, understanding

You were fearless and wise

A gentle and quiet spirit

Beautifully made

Woman of God

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Your love is

Instrumental in who I am

But I am just

A splinter of who you were

Memories of you

Forever live in me

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am, but rather that I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for your first approach. From that point you'll understand the power behind such a statement. If you're interested in what I do, that's another story. I embrace life to live my purpose: I treat self, I mother, I friend; I laugh, I cry, I support; I love, I like, I admire. I'm passionate about everything associated with "home." My motto: 'If you don't have TGIHome moments every day, you ain't there yet!' I sell real estate and I'm always happy to show off my interior decorating skills. I'm licensed and certified so I must be good! Mainly I trust and have faith, and thank God for every day I am able to use my life experiences to help people through theirs. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
