With a Heart of Gold

wifes Grandmother (our Maw Maw) has her 90th birthday coming up and we were asked to write something about her for her Birthday book they are putting together.
I wrote this from the grandchildren’s perspective. Even though I have only know her for 18 years of my life….i know how she has been with the rest of the grandchildren for all of their lives……


With a Heart of Gold
By V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 11-19-2010

The special role of a Grandmother is one that never ends,
Both, great strength and loving patience are required.
A mentor, with enduring understanding and dedication,
Heartfelt care and brilliant kindness are too desired.

A Grandmother is woman who throughout her accomplished life,
Has at one time or another – seen and done it all.
Yet can still be with you for your new adventures and journeys,
And help guide you no matter the experience you befall.

Yet there is lagniappe when we talk about Maw Maw,
A special woman with a little something extra inside.
Someone who could never be duplicated or replaced,
A woman whom we as grandchildren, take great pride.

From day one she was there to greet us into the world,
With open and loving arms to hold us so secure.
A nose to our nose and a light kiss on the cheek,
To let us know that we are loved so true and very pure.

Through our lives she has been with us each and every day,
To help guide us and support our incredible dreams.
With her support we have learned and most certainly prospered,
And together we have enjoyed life gifts most supreme.

For ninety years now, she has been one of a kind,
And there most certainly will never be another.
So on this day of her birth we offer love and gratitude,
To our Maw Maw – our dearest Grandmother.
