Memories of My Grandmother
My granny always had us over for Sunday dinner
After her church service, and fellowship with tea and cookies
She wasn’t wealthy, but always had a pretty dress and hat
Once my granny was “Queen For A Day,” if you remember?
She was the rose that day, with all the presents she won.
I can still see Grandma sitting on that throne.
She was our queen, and led our family as if royalty.
My granny wasn’t perfect, but she was humble.
I remember thinking when I was a little girl
That maybe one day I could wear pretty hats and dresses
Just like granny did.
My granny cooked everything from scratch
Made roasts, baked cookies and biscuits.
My favorite was her apple strudel
Whether it was a roasted chicken or beef
Grandma always had homemade soup to start
Always had a desert, cherry pie, or muffins
My granny was the best cook ever, and she
Showed her love in what she cooked or baked.
She had a heart of gold, and if anyone needed
Anything she gave freely from her heart.
Never did she say well, I’ll see
But how she answered was how much do you need
These are happy memories of a Granny who had love
in her soul.
