Or, maybe I do.
I was given the news that sometime around the first of September I would inherit this title. . .
As overjoyed as I was, it didn’t take but a few seconds to start thinking, really???? What does a grandma look like these days?
Does she dress in maxi skirts with high heels?
Or is it best to stick with a maxi skirt and sandals?
I’m sure she should wear a fun hat, right? Oh, and of course some BIG sunglasses (lol)
When I think of the word grandma, this is what I picture.
(my darling grandma with me and my little sister)
My grandmother always wore a dress, and lots and lots of different hats.
The word grandmother also brings to mind
-toast with marmalade jam
-the smell of gardenia
-a big rocking chair
-stack of books
-women playing bridge
-weekly appointments to the hair salon (and then sleeping with toilet paper pinned on their heads).
-always being at home
-full of LOVE, SMILES, and ACCEPTANCE
This new grandma
– will most likely put on some nike shoes for a morning run
– still loves sporting her boyfriend jeans
– has a difficult time keeping the speed limit
-is still known to yell at referees and umpires.
BUT she will
-share her love of reading with you
-share her love of entertaining with you
-take you for nature walks
-take you shopping
-be a listening hear
And most of all she will LOVE, SUPPORT and ACCEPT you every step of your life.
What are some memories you have of your grandmother?
And, if you already have this title, what do they call you?
I’m leaning towards Grandma Queena (just joking) although this is the new charm baby to be gave me.
Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day:)
I’m now heading over to Patti’s for Visible Monday.
