A GRANDMA'S LOVE

Love is something you can't see with your eyes, or hold in your hands.
Love is a special way you can show it to the person you love.
A grandmother's tenderness to a child is a thing called love.
A little word like love can give someone a lift.
Thank God that the world was blessed with a little love.
Thank God for Grandma Mona.
