I'm a mother, and grandmother. And an artist, an animal activist, a musician, (piano and guitar, and various folk instruments that hang on my wall & aren't really played much these days) & a gardener. Art and music and laughter are the things that aren't people or animals that mean the most to me. While I've given birth to only one child, (a son who's given me a lovely daughter-in-law and 4 grandchildren I've had many that have lived with me for short and long periods. Most of them still come home, and some bring their children who also call me "grandma", a title I will always be happy and proud to bear. It's late and I'm tired, but I will add more later.
