There's No Place Like Grandma's

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE GRANDMA'S

There's no place like grandma's
In this day and age
Mom's and dad's are busy
It's babysitting days
But grandma's always love it
When children are around
They never lose their motherhood
They keep them safe and sound

Going to hockey practice
Then there's dancing lessons
Who is playing the piano again
Grandma's little stressing's
What time shall I pick them up
Where's that address again
Grandma's putting the miles on
For her love of them

Come to grandma honey
Give me a little kiss
When you guys are not around
It's something that I miss
And children know who love them
And go the extra mile
When that sound" grandma's here!"
You should see the wondrous smile!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
