I'M SORRY GRANNNY I KNOW MY ACTIONS SHORTENED YOUR LIFE TO ONLY 105



 GRANNY'S CONSTANT PRAYER
“Oh good lord!” My grandmother’s standard reply whenever I acted foolish. Though she counted what was foolish according to age, why she always prayed to God for my actions was beyond me. It was prayer; sure as hell I knew she wasn’t talking to me in her exasperation. I wonder what she’d be saying now.

  10. Everything passes as we age. Grandma remains.

  11. I wish so much that I'd known any of my grandparents. For sure they would have been moaning about some of my actions! :)

  12. ...Ah! But now the difference is she sees HIS face and hears the angels singing. :)

  13. I think that my grandmother was wonderful. She was good to me, even when I was a pain in the ass.
