She was an Angel

(there were a few more things I wanted to mention about her that I had previously left out)

I loved you the moment my eyes saw you.  

I carried you on my hip like a sack of flour,

you were full of energy

and crawled on both legs and hands,

you reminded me of a little spider. 

You loved all things old

as I naturally did. 

I tried to teach you to crochet and macrame,

but that wasn't your calling. 

I made your baby's first quilts and wanted to teach you,

but you wanted to buy the old one's instead. 

You stared at my old things for hours. 

Many treasures that were mine are now yours. 

You took up my love of gardening and

finding garden items

You loved my apple cake and

homemade tortillas 

At the end I didn't want to let you go,
I held on tight to your neck just like I did when you were little.
I said I love you with some of my very last breaths.
She was an angel,
I loved you back!! 

She naturally had one child but adopted and raised 6 more children, including my mother. She didn't treat them any different from her own and loved each and every one of them as if they were hers.
(the picture of her above was taken at Allen Farm between Navasota and Brenham where she grew up)
