Warm Friendship...

We used to walk down the street…
Peering longingly into shops that we passed…
Wishing we were the richest women in the world so that we could buy it all…
She always laughed at my jokes and told me stories of days I never knew…
The silver in her hair, the lines of knowledge and experience upon her face…
She contains so much…so much knowledge, wisdom, experience, and pain too…
We have laughed, we have cried, but most of all we have grown…together…

To her, to that very special friend of mine…I want her to know on her birthday that
She is so much more to me than she thinks…
She has given me so many wonderful gifts, wrapped caringly in her love…
Her warm and welcoming hugs have fueled my endurance
And her advice, poured out generously has built my immunity against those who would hurt me…

She needs to know that I cherish her friendship, her mentorship, but most of all she needs to know that she is so much more than just a grandmother to me...
