…the best grandma in the whole wide world!
I can’t seem to comprehend how you do what you do. You manage to have a job, love your husband, take care of all your millions of children and grandchildren, invest in your friends, and somehow take care of yourself on top of it all.
You are the most selfless person I know. If you see someone who needs something, you will give them yours. If someone needs a babysitter, you do it for free without complaints. If someone needs help, you will hop up to lend a hand.
I have always felt like life and people are too chaotic and unstable, but you have always been consistent AND loving. When you said you would pick me up, you came. When you said you would do something for me, you would do it. If I needed help, you would always be there. If I needed to talk, you would listen and give me loving advice. When I was hungry, you fed me until I felt like I was gonna puke. When I felt alone, you made me feel special and loved. When I felt discouraged, you made me feel inspired.
I think my favorite part about you is the way you seem to age with me.
When I was five, you were able to live life with me as a five year old, doing things that a five year old would like. When I was a teenager, you related to me like a friend would and did things that I would like to do. You didn’t try and make me stay young and in the past, but changed as I did.
You are one of the only people in the world who I feel like I could tell anything to and not feel judged one bit and know that you would support me, but not necessarily what I was doing. Not only that, but you would respond in love and with guidance that would be beneficial and out of wisdom.
You are such a good role model for what I want to be like. I love you with all my heart and will never be able to repay you for all that you have done for me. You probably do not even know half of the impact you have had. I am so lucky to have you in my life.
