Grandmother's are such a blessing to
And to have a Great-Grandmother
Is just that much more special & blessed. . .
I was very fortunate to have both of my
And I had three of my Great-Grandma's
Each one having a special place in my life.
And each one sharing cherished memories with me.
As I child I was particularly close to my
She was beautiful. . . !
She was a gentle little Grandma
She was "little", she wasn't even 5 feet tall. . .
As a little child I liked to sit by her on the couch
because her feet didn't touch the floor, just like mine.
As a child I liked to sit at her kitchen table
And have her homemade bread. . . toasted
She taught me how to dunk it in my hot chocolate.
She taught me other things as well.
This is a china plate that belonged to her.
It is very old and fragile. . .
Great Grandma would be over 130 years old!
I just have one plate. . . . my great-aunt has the set.
I have very few things that belonged to my
So this china plate is very cherished by me.
Most of all I have cherished memories of my
And I like to think that I inherited some of her
She loved her family, and you always knew they
were the most important "things" in her life.
A gentle pat on my little hand let me know
Great-Grandma Pickering loved me!
Did you have a great-grandma?
I hope you will come back again. . . . .K
