Grandma's Tea Cup

My Grandma Dot
Was very special to me.
She was my nurturer, and my security
When my Mother died I was only
7 years old and
Grandma Dot
Took me and my Brother into her home and heart
She was a gentle soul and loved us dearly.
She taught me so much
How to Love, How to Trust, How to Care.
She died over 46 Years Ago.
And I miss her.
I only have a few of her earthly possessions,
And one of them is this
Beautiful Tea Cup and Saucer
 She had very few possessions
But she had more love and compassion than anyone I know.
 Her little tea cup and saucer sits in my curio. . .
Protected from any harm. .
Just like my Grandma was with me
Protecting me from any harm.
 Grandma had such a delicate touch.
She taught me some of the finer things of life.
She taught me how to crochet and how to embroidery. . .
I thought at the time I could never do the beautiful crochet work
That my Grandma did. . .
I think she would be proud of me now.
I know where my Grandma is
And I know that someday I will be with her.
I will feel her delicate touch on my cheek,
I will hear her soft voice
And I we will be together once again.

I will be linking this with
