I am Thankful
I have had almost 32 complete years with my grandparents
I had my grandfather walk me down the isle
When I took my vows
I danced with my grandfather after I became a Mrs.
I lived in the same state when my 1st child was born
Both my Grandmother and father took hold of my sweet child
on her 1st Easter at a mere 4 weeks old

I am Thankful
Since I moved away almost 7 years ago
I have seen them at least once a year
I talk with them weekly
and most of the time my Grandfather can recall my voice

I am Thankful
That I feel they have seen me grow into a young woman
then into a moth, again, again, and yet again
I feel they are proud of whom I've become
and they love seeing packages of treats arrive from me at their door

I am Thankful
that at 94 my Grandfather recalls who I am
He can make out my face if I am close enough
and stills remembers my childhood

I am Thankful
that my 85 year old Grandmother
can do most of her cares without my mother's help
That she still has an amazing sense of humor
and is still one of the most clever and thoughtful people I have ever met

I am Thankful
That all four of my blessings
have on at least one occasion have met and been held
hugged and kissed
by the 2 eldest loves of my life

I am Thankful
my children know who my grandparents are

I am Thankful
