What Is a Grandma?

A grandma is warm hugs

and sweet memories.

She remembers all of

your accomplishments

and forgets all of your


She is someone you can tell

your secrets and worries to,

and she hopes and prays that

all your dreams come true.

She always loves you,

no matter what.

She can see past temper tantrums

and bad moods,

and makes it clear that they

don't affect how precious

you are to her.

She is an encouraging word

and a tender touch.

She is full of proud smiles.

She is the one person in the world

who loves you with all her heart,

who remembers the child you were

and cherishes the person

you've become.
