What are Grandparents Made of?

What are Grandparents Made of?
Arlene Holzman

Kindness with sprinkles of sweetness M. C.
Homework help with lots of smiles L.S.
Sweet treats and tasty meats S.R.
Lessons on how to be a good person H.H.
That’s what grandparents are made of

Ghibli movie nights, weird drawing contests, and delicious food A. N.
Optimism and joy A.G
Shopping, spoiling, and silly faces A.K.
Cooking and kindness R.U.
That’s what grandparents are made of

Hikes, swimming, boat rides and fun J. T.
Making the best food A. H.
Joy, endless love and hope S.M.
Cooking and caring C.L.
That’s what grandparents are made of

Funny jokes that make me laugh R.M.
Shopping for toys that I adore K.L.
Favorite food at pick up time A.A.
Forgiving hearts that never let you down T.T.
That’s what grandparents are made of

Laughable jokes and performing magic tricks. B. S.
Made-up stories and shopping S. K.
Loving, kind hugs K.B.
The joy that they deliver A.N.Y.
That’s what grandparents are made of

Awesome baking and cooking skills L. K.
Teachable stuff, fresh food and Disneyland D. K.
THEY LOVE US FOR WHO WE ARE…
That’s what grandparents are made of!

Love,
