Poem from grandchildren

How do you do what you do,
it seems you're always doing something new.
Making a meal or cleaning the house,
working as a doctor to your crippled spouse.
Loving & caring for whoever's around
and still finding time to go to town.
You are the one that we love,
the one that helps if push comes to shove.
No matter what time, no matter what day,
everyone knows what you will say
It will never be NO but always be yes
even if it puts you under some stress.
We can't explain the way we feel,
because the way you treat us is so ideal.
If we are sad we just give you a call
and you're picking us up before we fall.
We want to thank you with all of our hearts
for looking after us from the very start
We really are blessed to have you as our grandma
So we thank you for being our one and only Mamaw
