A Word on Grandmothers~

I am reading a book called,
Hero of my Soul
by Jim McGuiggan

First let me say it is a must own book.
Each chapter is a little story on its own.

The introduction has this quote, 
a quote that sets the tone for all that follows.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
Look full in his wonderful face.
And the things of earth will 
grow strangely dim,
In the light of his glory and grace.
~Helen H. Lemmel

So little of this post are my words.
Just a beautiful short about Grandmothers.

One little boy put it well when asked what a grandmother was.
He said: " A grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own,
so she loves everybody else's.

Grandmas don't have anything to do except be there.
  If they take you for a walk, they slow down past leaves and caterpillars.  
They never say
'hurry up'.  

Usually they're fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes.  
The wear glasses, and sometimes they can take their teeth out. 

They can answer questions like why dogs hate cats and why 
God isn't married.  

When they read to you, they don't skip words
or mind if it's the same story again. 

 Everyone should try to have a grandmother, 
especially if they don't have television, because grandmas are the only grownups who always have time for you."
