29: My Walk With Mom Today you go before me, Mom, As I walk down the aisle. I know you're happy, yet there is A tear mixed with your smile. I close my eyes and travel back To days when I was small, When you would take much slower steps So that I wouldn't fall. And ever since you've been there, too, Through every trial and tear. Your mother's love has always made My troubles disappear. I've found a very special love, And we will be apart. But though I'm at another's side, I'll never leave your heart.
30: Grandparents hold our tiny hands for just a little while... but our hearts forever.

But we're never separated We're in each other's heart. We have had lots of good times That we'll never forget Sometimes we worry And sometimes we fret. But if God ever gave me Something special you see, It might have been the blessing of, Three sisters are we. The Lord above gave me lots Of happiness and glee But the most special thing he did was Make us sisters, all three.

75: A Grandmother's Love As children, we can't comprehend or fully realize the meaning of a grandmother's love. How wise she is, how much patience she has, or how much guidance she gives us by her example and by her helpful caring ways. Years go by before we know and understand the depth of her concern and the love in her protectiveness. But as we mature we do finally understand and we can look back and see through older eyes and wiser hearts her unconditional love, devotion, and family loyalty. It's these and many other things that make us realize how lucky we have been and how lucky we are to have this amazing woman - our grandmother - as the centered root of strength and love in our life. We Love you, Grandma! Happy Birthday!
