Grandma, You Taught Me the Birds & the Bees!
Yes, you laid it all out. Your words and life showed me what life is all about! Through your eyes, I saw things most people discarded and threw away. Thank you, for your guidance for leading the way. Live in each moment with joy and a smile, don't be wasteful or ungrateful, be positive my child! Rising early in the morning to hot coffee and tea with the love of your life was one of your top priorities. Reading your words of encouragement to your sweetie pie was the honey that made your life sweet, no matter how many days went by. The way he looked at you proved you were the apple of his eye. Each day your love grew stronger and deeper, making the time fly. Even the robins and blue jays took notice of you. Feeding the birds and flowers was just one of the ways you made creation do what it was meant to do. How sweet the sound of the breath from your small frame. Making melodies was your favorite game. You took the time to stop and sit in the sun each day. Yoga and deep breathing were how you kept your stress away. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, beans, and seeds, was your signature menu and your best cuisine. Don't get it twisted that was not all you ate! Vernor's ginger ale, cashews, potato chips, and pork skin tickled your fancy and made you grin. Many days they were your favorite snack time friends. I assure you there is no need to worry or fret your family, your big clan of children will live out your legacy, according to the Lord’s plan. We each received a gift, a mantle, you see. Each changing the world for the better to some degree. When I think of all the lessons your life taught me about the world and the care for my fellow man, I am a grown-up only when my care for others is more than my demands. Marriage is forever the treasure your story taught me. Food as medicine is my gift, and helping others get free, is the fruit of my life tree. The memories of your message have forever shaped and strengthened me. Keep watching from up above with love. Proud of your family is what you will always be! I love and miss you with each passing day, but that’s what happens when your only Grandma goes to heaven to stay. Thank you, for teaching me the birds and the bees. Read Chapter 1: 1 Peter 2:1-3King James Version (KJV) 2 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.13 God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.
