She is My Grandmother

November 26, 2007
By Whitney Cullum, Auburn, WA

She grew up with a sister, a mother and a dad
A time in society when dating a different race was unheard of
She moved around a lot and made the best of every situation
She is my grandmother

Every dance she went to but never with a white boy
She lived in Italy and fell in love with an Italian
Her mother died when she was young; that never slowed her down
She is my grandmother

She moved away and got married and had children of her own
She got divorced and then remarried; once more after that
She is happy, strong minded, and strong willed
She is my grandmother

She never let anything slow her down
Not kids or husbands, it was her life
She has always lived her life to the fullest
She is my grandmother
