Requirements of a Grandmother


A grandmother’s heart has to be made big and grand.

So she can fit each little one in with room to expand.

A grandmother’s arms have to be made sturdy and strong.

So they can comfort and hug away every wrong.

A grandmother’s lap has to made readily available and clear.

So she has room for any who are needing to be near.

A grandmother’s mind has to be sharp and conscise.

So she can keep track of whose turn it is; who gets the next slice.

A grandmother’s prayer life has to be feverent, availing much.

So her little ones are covered with the Almighty’s touch.

A grandmother’s walk with God has to be consistent that never sways.

So her little ones will walk in her footsteps all of their days.

  1. I absolutely love this! I was blessed with such a Grammy! I am very sorry that you weren’t ❤️
    If it weren’t for her love and faith (that she expressed even at times when I wanted hear her reject the Lord)I believe I would not be writing this to you right now ❤️
    Thank you, Amy! May you get a chance to be that Grammy that you didn’t get to have ❤️
    Love in Jesus!

  2. This is amazing!
    I had a very distant relationship with my paternal grandmother, whom was called home a few years ago.
    My maternal grandmother has been in my life since I was a tiny one.
    This is frame worthy Amy, absolutely amazing! You are oh so talented with your words! Love it 🥰💕

                  1. I’d have them available for purchase on Etsy. Make a sample and print it on card stock in a pretty color, take a picture and sell it. The ‘grandmother’ poem is absolutely amazing! I’m sure it’ll do well.
                    I buy my pictures for my families DIY shirts I make, for our Disney trips on Etsy and it’s send to me by pdf format – so easy.

  3. This is especially appreciated by one who has been a grandmother three times.
    The next step is great grand parenting. I’ll have to put your post on my refrigerator in case I forget by then.

    1. My mother in law is everything this poem says to my children. Even my daughter from a previous marriage never gets overlooked by her. I hope I can be a good grandmother when the time comes. How are you Kathy?

      1. Aww, I am so glad you have such a warm blessing and role model.
        We are going through some rough patches in our neck of the woods: friends and relatives who may not be with us much longer; their and our health issues. We are “troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair,” as Paul says. 😊
        Thank you, dear friend.
