    Grandma's Lessons Never End

    Like many women, I quit my job several years ago to take care of my 89 year-old Grandmother after she had stroke.  At least we think it was a stroke.  Medical examination never conclusively revealed what was wrong with her.  I came home from work one day to find...

    My Grandmother Is The Best

    I just found out that my grandmother is in the hospital and is going to have surgery. She is frail but she chose this surgery instead of being in a wheelchair the rest of her life. I would have done the same thing. She is so far away from me and I can't be with her...

    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...

    Our favorite thing to do is watch The Golden

    Girls together. She always asks me to watch it with her, or when I'm sick she'll watch it with me. I love it, and I love my grandmother. She's my best friend and I don't know what I would do without her. Actually, we're watching The Golden Girls right now. I have a cold so I...

    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...

    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...
