I remember . . .
Your quick speech, always in a hurry
Your fried fruit pies, buttermilk biscuits and grease gravy
All the time you spent talking with your grandchildren.
The strict diet you kept while cooking our favorite foods
Always tithing to your church, donating to TV preachers and taking us to church
Wearing slacks under your dress to church when it was cold
Words . . .
Things . . .
Stories . . .
The huge, long belt you kept rolled up to always remember your weight loss
Going on the train to help family members
Of growing up without a mother and becoming a mother to 3 little girls overnight
And how you let us rummage through your dresser drawers
And save newspapers with articles you thought we should read
You always made us feel loved
We miss you, Grandma. I will always love you.
