"If you know your past and you know where you have to
go, why do you rehearse?" I always remember this and it's true.
You have to start each day again - you can't repeat what you did.

Sadly, some folks want others to feel their pain, to
hurt as much as they do - or more. My grandmother once
told me to avoid colds and angry people whenever I could. It's sound advice.

A Grandmother is someone special in your life
Someone who always has time,
Time to listen, time to play
Time to visit the zoo
Time to linger and look at the things I want to do
Time to laugh, time to sing

Time to read, time to walk
Time to let me just play at the dock.

And, lots of things to take apart
From kitchen cupboards to the old wooden cart.
A house filled with warmth, laughter, and love
Our family thinks our Grandma was sent from heaven above.
