Cute Gift Ideas With Grandmother Quotes


Grandmother Poems


Gives the best hugs

Takes us on adventures

Makes each day full of sunshine

Always makes us feel special

Reads us stories

Tells us stories about her childhood

Has a beautiful heart

Sings silly songs

Sends us fan mail

Is one in a million to us!

sleeping baby girl with text: 'Grandchildren are like flowers. Watch them bloom and water them with love.'


You are the child of my child, and your life is a joy to me.

I am grateful to have you in my life.

As I watch through the generations, I am reminded that the bonds we form are as everlasting as the spirit.


Grandchildren are a blessing, a gift from heaven above,  

precious little angels, to cherish and love.

A wee bit of heaven, drifted down from above,

a handful of happiness, a heartful of love.


Grandma, hold me a little longer, rock me a little more.

Tell me another story  (you've only told me four!).

Let me sleep on your shoulder, I love your happy smile.

I'll always love you, Grandma, so stay with me a while.

a mirror of today,

a door to a tomorrow I may never see

and the keeper of my heart for all eternity!
