Grandmother . . .

 

It's not the things that can be bought

that are life's richest treasure,

It's just the little heart gifts

that money cannot measure . . .

A cheerful smile, a friendly word,

a sympathetic nod

Are priceless little treasures

from the storehouse of our God . . .

They are the things that can't be bought

with silver or with gold,

For thoughtfulness and kindness

and love are never sold . . .

They are the priceless things in life

for which no one can pay,

And the giver finds rich recompense

in giving them away.

And who on earth gives more away

and does more good for others

Than understanding, kind and wise

and selfless, loving Grandmothers.
