A grandmother is a little girl who’s had more time to grow up than anybody!
One of her greatest assets is age.
She’s lived through three to six generations,
and experience is a wise teacher.
A small boy knows he can bring his troubles to his grandmother and she’ll understand.
She never expects a boy to be perfect the way a mother sometimes does.
A little girl knows no one can tell better stories,
make prettier doll clothes,
or serve sweeter cookies.
Troubles fade in her arms,
the world isn’t nearly as frightening a place when she’s there.
And she can always be counted on to take the underdog’s part.
Blessed, indeed, is the child who can carry a good grandmother image into the long hard years ahead.
