The Gift Giver

gramandrio

Yesterday, I was just hit by the realization that
so many years later,
I am still in awe of her.
This woman
who’s buried babies, sisters and her husband.

This woman,
the mother of my mother
is awesome, amazing, inspiring, endearing and outspoken
I hold her near like a much loved treasure.
