I Am a Grandmother

Written by Cheryl Almond

I am a grandmother,
of a nonverbal grandchild who speaks with unencumbered gestures,
delightful smiles and ear piercing squeals.

I am a grandmother,
of a grandchild that can not stand or walk on her own
but moves with emotional intent.

I am a grandmother,
of a grandchild that cannot make choices as quickly as most.
But revels in her successes!

I am a grandmother,
of a grandchild that lights up a room with her smile and quiets a
gallery of voices when she has something to say.

I am a grandmother,
of a warrior who gives it her all when asked to do things
that take her to new heights.

I am a grandmother,
of a grandchild that sees me, smells me, touches me, with her eyes,
nose and hands that only a child with a keen understanding of
unconditional love can embrace.

I am a grateful grandmother,
of a beautiful masterpiece that makes me so much more
than I thought I could ever be.

Her name is Alexandra.
