denotes my grandmother perfectly. As I said before, this last weekend I had the opportunity to go home. I took full advantage even though my immediate family was off elsewhere.
My dear grandmother, Mommee, insisted I stay with her. She has been a widow for a few years now so I was more than glad to do so. Little did I know I was in for a grand treat.She took me to dinner at a popular place on the river. When I returned to sleep, she had a fresh Magnolia cut for me and my bed turned down. As you might know, once Magnolias are cut they turn brown in less than 12 hours. She had a fresh one cut for me both nights. I woke up to breakfast on a tray. & every meal was so nicely done.
My grandparents have lived in the same house for over 55 years. I'm convinced my grandmother has the best looking Magnolia tree in town--which says a lot. 55 years ago this was a 'house warming gift." It was a small stub of a tree. & look at it now. Made me think twice how special house warming gifts can be.
