GG’s Favorite Routines

Grandma's Irises

Grandma’s Irises

January 2, 2014

It’s hard to believe my grandmother has been gone for a year already.  I miss her so, but I take comfort in the fact that my dearest angel is watching over me.  When she died my sisters and I gathered and reminisced about our beloved grandmother.  She had a knack for being very routine, so we created the following song that we sang at her funeral.

GG’s Favorite Routines

(Sung to the melody of “My Favorite Things”)

 

Plumped pillows in place and the blankets just so

Bathrobe and slippers all ready to go

Bows in each corner and one in between

These were a few of her fav’rite routines

 

Meals starting with grace, but not being complete

Unless she had tea and a little something sweet

Opening her curtains to enjoy the valley scene

These were a few of her fav’rite routines

 

When our tears flow

When our hearts ache

When we’re feeling sad

We simply remember her fav’rite routines

And then we don’t feel so bad

 

Tending her garden and arranging her flowers

Opening her home to weddings and showers

Keeping her house and her yard so pristine

These were a few of her fav’rite routines

 

Lipstick and glasses and hair all in place

Greeting each person with a smile on her face

She was the best grandma that you’ve ever seen

We love her for all of her fav’rite routines

 

When our tears flow

When our hearts ache

When we’re feeling sad

We simply remember her fav’rite routines

And then we don’t feel so bad
