+ A Glimpse Of Lady Certainly Rocking Our Granddaughter

[July 4th, 2006; revised December 21, 2019]

 

Shyly, she climbs up on your lap, quiet as can be,
to hear you sing the hymn:  "Jesus Loves Me."
Oh, my Beloved Lady Certainly,
this moment in time means so much to me,

far more than can be told in poetry.

Yes, but also softly and gently, and well in tune; watching and listening, I felt tears in my eyes.  I never thought I would ever meet a grandmother as loving as my own paternal grandmother was to me, until my wife and I became grandparents.  Then I saw my own grandma, all over again.  Fourteen years later, with our two youngest grandchildren (three, and less than one year), and our first great grandchild (less than a year) she is just as much loving to them, and just as fully engaged.

Yes.  Even our new great-grandchild, and her sibling on the way, will benefit for her presence and from the spiritual grace that distinguishes her.

Thank you so very much.  I

Thank you so very much.  I wrote that poem a long, long time ago, after observing it actually happen on July 4, 2006, so fourteen years ago as of Saturday.  I never thought I would ever see anyone as wonderfully grandmotherly as my own paternal grandmother had been . . .  until I watched my wife (second marriage for both of us) with the grandchildren of our blended family.  The poem recounts one of the finest memories I have.
