Something for the Grandmothers!

I have done a lot of thinking regarding mothers and motherhood in the past and have turned my most recent thoughts to grandmothers. Could be because I saw three grandchildren yesterday or just because I really enjoy being a Grandma! Anyway, following is a little something for all the Grandmothers:

Today's Grandma

In the dim and distant past
When lifes tempo wasn't fast,
Grandma used to rock and knit,
Crochet, tat and babysit.

Grandma now is at the gym
Exercising to keep slim.
Now she' golfing with the bunch,
Taking clients out to lunch.
She's going north to ski and curl
And all her days are in a whirl.

Nothing seems to stop or block her,
Now that Grandma's off her rocker.

Way to go, Grandma's! Keeps us young if we can keep up the pace, right?

I agree that everyone should maintain the fire within them.

My mom, a grandma, has both sides of that equation pretty well covered. I hope I can live up to her example!

The grandma stereotype is sure changing. I'm glad you are having so much fun being one! :)
