PostSubject: "Dear Mee-Maw"---My Poem To My Dear Grandmother   Sat Feb 05, 2011 1:10 am

This is the poem I wrote as my Grandmother was dying & after she died last year. After nearly a whole year of being hidden in a desk drawer, I found the poem....I thought for the frist time I would share.



Written: 2/5/10---2/7/10

Dear Mee-Maw,



I just want you to know what all I have learned from you in the short 15 years I have known you...



I have learned to be very independent but very dependent on Jesus.



I have learned to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.



I have learned to be sweet, kind, loving, selfless, giving, & gentle to people even if they are not to you.



I have learned never to complain, but always speak the postive & best.



I have learned to have a bright & sunny outlook on life.



I have learned to always think the very best of others & never judge a book by it's cover.



I have learned to be patient & wait upon the Lord.



I have learned to honor thy Father & thy Mother, for it will bring you long life.



I have learned to always extend a helping & caring hand when a loved one, friend, or even a stranger needs help.



I have learned to be cheerful & always try to bring a smile to a sad face or a light hearted laugh to the depressed one.



I have learned that laughter truly is the best medcine one can take.





Yes, I have learned SO many things from you, but the one main thing I have learned from you is to ALWAYS put your trust in the Lord no matter what because He will never fail you or let you down.



I am so very blessed to have had a Grandmother who practiced these things ever single day & I am so very proud and honored to have your beautiful name, "Julia Virginia".........



I love you Mee-Maw----------more than you will ever know...



Love,

Julia Virginia

It is the lack of Christianity that has brought us where we are. Not a lack of churches or religious forms but of the real thing in our hearts. LIW.....Words From a Fearless Heart
