Happy Birthday, Grammy!
Your spirit continues to surround me,
and I often find myself with a smile on my face
knowing what you would be saying in a given situation.
"Couldn't be better"
"Oh, that naughty puppy tail"
There are more, but often it is just your smile.
Your kind and selfless smile.
I am grateful to have known you.
For those who didn't,
This was written by her,
in a creative writing class
when she was 85years old.
This is the finale.
To my children and grandchildren.
You are my world and I am proud of you.
We are continuing with our Creative Writing Class again this year -
and I will be carrying on with these boring pages.
Now we have chosen the subject of "Free Speech" to write on.
I, of course, believe in free speech.
We are a very lucky country founded on freedom.
(read our history)
Everyone has rights and must execute them to the best of their ability.
But, I think this changing world is tiresome!
One should be thoughtful, have patience, and be careful of speech and opinions.
Be considerate of the feelings of other people.
Now that I am old I am so often mistaken,
Please forgive me.
I am thankful to be independent, and thankful to accept favors you can bestow on me.
God Bless you, one and all
