    Today, I found out that my grandmother's cancer

    has came back. She has a tumor on her brain, lungs, and liver. She also has pneumonia and a serious urinary tract and kidney infection. I'm trying to stay positive but it's hard. You never really realize how much you love someone until something like this happens. Cherish your...

    My paternal grandmother raised me

    after my 17 year old mother decided she still needed to "live life" and my father already 29 went home to his wife. We didn't have much, but I NEVER went without anything I needed and got most of what I wanted. Of my mother she said, "I wouldn't trust her to walk my dog across...

    Love Her So Much

    I was just watching the Syfy channel and I remembered my granny being terrified of those movies. She's 73 and oh so sweet. She was the one who took us in when my mom was ailing in rehab. I remember how she would wake us up for school with a hot meal sitting on...

    Gone But Not Forgotten

    I left England in 1970 when I was 7 after my father killed himself. My stepdad had left his wife and 3 children, never to talk to or see them again (until 4 years ago) and took us to Australia, cutting off everyone we were connected to unless they went along with his plan. I...

    I Love Them Both

    I love both of my grandmothers, but lately my paternal grandmother has been on my mind.  She lives in a nursing home near my father.  I need to contact her...it's been a long time.  It's kind of weird seeing her in a nursing home now.  She's always been very healthy and quite...

    I Love Her More Than Anything In The World

    I love her so much. She took me in when my mother didn't want me anymore. I'd rather die so I won't have to face the pain of her passing away. She's healthy now, but she's is older and I'm scared of losing her. I have horrible mood swings and sometimes I get a really bad attitude...

    Ever since I moved my computer from the living room to my bedroom, my granny has been looking at me with suspicion. Though she has never told me what bothers her, I have got a fair idea of it by now. She must be thinking I watch all the nonsense stuff on the Internet at night...

    When my mom was at the hospital and in labor there was some complications. I don't know all the details but I guess my mom's uterus or something was too narrow or whatever and while she was pushing, I got stuck and was dying. The doctor's kept telling my mom to push not looking...

    My grandmother is more like a mother to me.

    I love my mom, but my grandmother has always been there for me when I needed support. She's my everything. Everyday I see her suffering from pain and it kills me. If I could, I'd switch places with her, without a doubt. She's not dying, although I know, when that day comes, I...
