One of my greatest gifts from God is my Grandma. She is one of the most wonderful people I know. Always loving, always welcoming, always trying to make me laugh and feel great about myself at the same time. She sits on her swing and says hi to everyone who goes by. To her, every stranger is a friend. She says that dogs are the best friends because they never tell your secrets. She loves the color blue, sitting in the sun, and watching basketball. She used to make me pancakes in the shape of animals and letters. She told me worms would grow in my belly if I kept sneaking sugar from the sugar jar. She made "Silberzahn steak" for those who didn't eat liver. She taught me how to play Candy Land, Tiddlywinks, and Michigan Rummy. She sent me outside with a bar of Dove soap on rainy days and told me to take a Polish shower. She calls me her Carey Bear. She tells me to keep her straight. She asks me the same question 20 times in a row, but I always answer it like it's the first time she's asked. She tells me I'm beautiful and my daughter is an angel. She forgets a lot of things, but she never forgets me. My daughter is named after her. I love her more than words can say.
