A Grandma’s Love.
Grandma Susan (as her grandchildren fondly refer to her) is the kind of Grandma I aspire to be.
In fact… she’s the kind of human being I aspire to be.
I met Susan through her oldest grandson, who was my youngest son’s “roomer” in college.
To know Susan is to love Susan. Her joy for life, her positive attitude, her love for her family, her smile, the undeniable glow that radiates from her and touches everyone she encounters…. There is something very special about Susan, and I am so fortunate to call her my friend.
Without my even knowing, Susan purchased a copy of the book I announced authoring and illustrating about a month ago, Klaus the Mouse and other Silly Animal Tales. When she received it, she gathered her grandchildren – now aged 13-27 (and even the spouses of those that are married now!), for a fun reading. They happened to be gathering together for a bridal shower for one of her granddaughters, but they all took some time to sit down with Grandma Susan to listen to a few “silly stories.”
Can you believe how sweet this is?
You see, Susan is a retired school librarian and long-time lover of books and reading to children (and especially her grandchildren!).
Susan’s granddaughter, Charrie, told me Adele the Gazelle was her favorite character.
Thank you, Susan, for sharing your love, and for all your beautiful grands who gave permission for us to share.
I’m a new grandma, whose first granddaughter is not even a year old, but I hope I will be as loved and adored as Grandma Susan when my grand(s) are teenagers and married!
Cheers & Hugs,
