The Clasp of a Grandma's Hand



Throughout most of life, and there have been many decades, money was usually  short.

We always worked extremely hard but it was at human services jobs that didn't pay much.

Consequently, we are not among  people who have a lot of money to spend on whatever we want.

Money has always been stretched to the max.

We got pretty darned good at stretching, too, and I consider myself a thrift store queen!

Despite not being wealthy in a material sense, we are rich in so many ways that I couldn't possibly count them.

The other day, during a visit, my little granddaughter fell asleep clasping Gammie's fingers.

To me, that was worth more than all the money in the world!

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER A TREASURE WITHOUT MEASURE?

That was indeed powerful Susan - and again I'd agree with the other grandma's - our grandchildren...

Oh Susan, I can so relate to your post. Spending time with my great grandson is a gift beyond measure. We are blessed, aren't we?
