Tuesday's Tribute

There are many things that can be done on Tuesdays: tips, tackling household work, or today's choice - taking time to blog about someone else. - To discuss someone else rather than ourselves and our immediate circle of life around us. And thus today, I'd like to take this time to talk about my grandma.

She is a beautiful woman of God and she is loving beyond what seems possible. She always offers kind words to anyone that needs them, she will listen with the utmost patience - even to that relative that yammers on and on about medical conditions - she takes everything in stride and all with a Godly and loving attitude. I miss living close to her. When I was little I didn't attend "structured" preschool. I had my preschool in my grandma's family room. We sang songs together while I was on the swings in her backyard. She bought me a dress every easter, and bought me my most special dress: my wedding dress when that day came. She loves her great grandson with every ounce of her being. She is a wonderful cook and even on this last trip goes out of her way to make me the pancakes she's been making me since I was big enough to chew - she's the only one that can do it right. She is the backbone of our family. She is a blessing. You can hear her laugh even when she isn't around. She's traveled and lived throughout the world. She has a story for just about every subject. She is my Grandma.
