Happy Birthday in Heaven Grandma

Through my Grandmothers eyes I always looked

for bright beautiful tomorrows thhrough her eternal optimism

in spite of all the hardships in life

with her strong loving spirit

Through my Grandmothers ears I always heard the 


of life with her strong faith, 

and devotion

and very deep perserverance that all is good in life.

Through my Grandmothers words I was taught to speak

only words of kindness and love and always being

aware how harmful words can be

I try and always use words to never harm nor hurt anyone.

Through my Grandmothers heart, I always try and live

with love and compassion in my own, and be the light

of Christ in everyone I meet just as she has been to 


My Grandmother has been a most excellent teacher in my 


and no words could ever express my love for her.

Written by me Jeanne

for my precious Grandmother on her 92nd birthday!

I wrote this a few years ago.

Now she is 101 her first birthday in Heaven

An authentic life isn't measured 

by the house you live in, 

the car you drive,

the clothes you wear 

or the balance of your bank account. 

Nor is it about the religion you believe in,

where you work

or even where you live on this planet.

An authentic life is about how you choose to live each day,

the lives you touch with those choices,

and the memories you leave behind with those who loved you when you're gone.

An authentic life leaves a legacy.

Choose to leave that legacy.

Live an authentic life.

 Nita Clewis

How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these." 
George Washingon Carver


“Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to

the Universe, and the memories we 

leave behind when we someday exit

this world, will be our legacy to our

loved ones. The best thing we can do

for ourselves and everyone around us

is to find our joy and share it!”

or the smallest act of kindness. Practice and teach these skills

often." ~ Lisa Desatnik
