I remember her as an adult as someone safe in my life. At the time of her death she had over 80 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Even then she loved me and my children greatly. I have so many memories of my grandmother. There were things I did not know and did not know how to ask. So I gave my grandmother a book called "A Gift of Memories from Grandma." This was "Grandma's memory album...the first person story of Grandma's early years. A gift that will be a family treasure." They were right this book has become a family treasure.
After Grandma's funeral we were at Grandma's house. I pulled out her memory book she made for me. I passed it around to all her children. You could hear the laughter everywhere. They were amazed at the things they did not know about their mother.
I love my treasure. I love my Grandmother! Her advice to me via my treasure book is "Just be yourself which you are. Be a good mother & wife & home maker. Teach your children the ways of the Lord by all means."
I want to have my own treasure book like my Grandmother.
All About You in 52-Week 3
"If you could have changed one thing about yourself, what would it have been?"
"As a little girl I believe I must have been perfect, other than being shy. As a teenager I felt all wrong. I wanted to be pretty, thin, have straight hair & be outgoing.
Now, no matter, I know I'm perfect just the way God made me."
