The word for today is astonish.
Grammy was always the first to speak her mind. People listened back in those days because old people had experience and they were treated with utmost respect. I, as a child, could sit at the kitchen table and listen to Grammy’s stories about when she was a kid, for hours.
There was no better place than to go to Grammy’s house and eat her homemade cookies and pies. Grammy let me stay up late and sometimes I didn’t have to take a nap when I stayed the day with her.
Today is different. 2018 can still find wonderful Grandmas; but not as many take notice. Too many today are way too busy to stop and visit their Grammy. Now that I am much older; I am astounded at how split families are.
What happened to the stories? What happened to the cookies and pies? Oh, believe me, they are still there, but the rooms are quiet. The TV is on more often. Bedtime comes earlier. Life starts becoming less meaningful. Why don’t you pick up your phone and call your Grammy. Better yet, why not get in your car and pay her a visit; before it’s too late.
