    I got a visit from
    Grandma
    We talked about this and
    That sitting on the front
    Porch drankin' tea and
    Rockin in the chair
    Grandma told me how she
    Had missed me and how I'd
    Grown into such a beautiful
    Woman
    Grandma said she was sorry to be
    Gone for so long
    We talked about how I used to help
    Her around the house and how I would
    Eat all the cake
    Grandma came to visit me and we had such
    A good tyme
    She brushed and braided my hair
    Like she used to
    Reading me bible scriptures
    Talking about how it was when she
    Grew up
    We had such a good time on the front
    Porch drankin' tea and rockin back and
    Forth
    I asked her to stay with me this tyme
    She held ma face in her hands
    Kissed me and said

    "Jesus only gave me a few hours
    On this pass baby"

    I told her I loved her
    Just as quickly as she had come
    She was gone

    i know the feeling..

    it feels like my grandma has been gone from
    this earth a long time

    but it's only been a year

    yet it feels like an eternity

    This was so heart warming for me. I had a grandma, but she wasn't like that toward me. She didn't like my mother therefor she didn't like me and my mother's mother never lived to meet me. I still can relate tho. My mother is a grandma to my son and daughter like yours was to you. I sit back watch and listen to them interacting, my heart fills with joy. I tell them all the time be thankful, you're blessed to have a grandma. I often sat with my mother asking questions about her mother and she'd show me pictures and tell me how she would've been a great grandma. When I was a lil' girl I'd imagine she was with me and did all those things a grandma does. I miss the grandma I never knew. This was wonderful. Thanks
