What do you get a grandma,
Who is the best of the best,
Who loves and spoils her grandkids,
And is a notch above the rest.

What do you get a grandma,
Who bakes the yummiest cookies and sweets,
Who makes sure we’re all well-fed,
And go home with suckers and treats.

What do you get a grandma,
Who always makes time for us
From golf cart rides to playing UNO
She never makes a fuss.

RELATED: So God Made a Grandma

What do you get a grandma,
Who gives us fun jobs to do
From watering flowers to sweeping the deck
We always enjoy helping you.

What do you get a grandma,
Who sews and quilts with care,
Who makes special blankets,
And mends holes in clothes we wear.

What do you get a grandma,
Who gives selflessly each day,
Who drops everything to care for us,
And read, and sing, and play.

What do you get a grandma?
We’re afraid we still don’t know.
We wish we could find the perfect gift,
And wrap it with a bow.

RELATED: The Only Thing Better Than Having You As a Mom is Watching You As a Grandma

What do you get a grandma?
We think we’re starting to see
It’s not about money and gifts,
But rather time spent with thee.

So every day we’ll count our blessings,
And thank the Lord above . . . 
That we were blessed with the best grandma,
Who spoils us with unending love.

We love you, Grandma!
Thanks for all you do.
We all can’t wait,
To create more memories with you.

Raising Our Kids Near Their Grandparents is the Greatest Gift We Could Ever Give Them www.herviewfromhome.com

“Bapa?” My one-year-old says, as she toddles over with my cell phone clutched in her small hands. “Cah Bapa?”  I smile down at my daughter and take the outstretched phone. “Sure, we can call Grandpa.” She bounces on her toes as I tap the FaceTime icon, my dad’s face appearing on the screen a few seconds later.  “Bapa!” She beams, as he smiles hello to his biggest, tiny fan who stands in awe of him just a couple of blocks away.  You see, we live just down the street from my mom and dad—my husband’s parents live in the same...

We were going to move. I was ready for a change. We talked about it, my husband and me, about moving to the coast for a change of scenery. We visited subdivisions, builders, cities on the outskirts of our destination of choice. We shared our dreams and made plans, confident that a change would be good for us—good for our children, good for our marriage. We were preparing ourselves for the biggest move of our lives, away from everything and everyone we knew. Everything seemed to be falling perfectly in place. Then when we returned home after our vacation and...
