7 years ago today, my world dimmed a little when my Grandma died. I visited with her nearly every day, drinking tea, chatting about anything and everything. Sometimes I would stay long enough to watch her “programs” with her, like the Bold and the Beautiful or Ellen. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t think of her but I am so grateful to have so many wonderful memories. I decided to post one of my poems from my soon to be published poetry book in today’s post, the one I wrote about her.

She would drink coffee

And I would drink tea

We enjoyed spending time

Sometimes hours, her, and me

Whether telling old stories

Or discussing whatโ€™s new

My time spent with Grandma

Brought me joy, through and through

She was thoughtful and funny

And her jokes were the best

She could bake like no other,

Oh, how we were blessed

 Not a single day passes

When I donโ€™t wish to be

Spending more time with Grandma

Drinking coffee and tea

I am an aspiring author, military wife, and mother of four boys. In my free time, I am a voracious reader and lover of large cups of tea. While I enjoy reading everything, my favorite genre is fantasy. One of my hobbies is reading and reviewing books on various online platforms. I have dabbled in short stories and writing poetry, publishing a small book of my poems in 2022, with an independent publisher. I enjoy keeping the world up-to-date on her writing, reading, and random thoughts on my blog.I am also currently writing my first novel.
