FC: {Grandma's Recipes} | Tastes of the Farm

1: For My Grandchildren As I hold you in my arms for the first time, I look down at your innocent face and tell you, "I am your Grandma" I tell you what good friends we'll become. I promise you that my heart will always be a safe haven where my love for you will know no obstacles. I will always have faith in you and believe in you. My home will always be your home. You are my second chance, sweet innocent baby. My second chance to bake cookies, and watch the sparkling anticipation in your eyes. My second chance to sit and rock a baby to sleep in my arms, experiencing that tiny heart beating next to mine. My second chance to experience the wonder of a child discovering you can walk and blow dandelions into the sky. And this time, there will be no rushing to keep schedules and clean the house. You have the advantage of my years and having gained the wisdom of knowing what's really important in life. You have the advantage that I know my place in the world and that a few cobwebs don't really matter. We'll grow old together... I'll just get there a little sooner. And someday, when I'm gone, you'll look back upon all the times we shared and smile. The word "Grandma" will always hold a special place in your heart, just as you have always held one in mine.
