This is my second publicati on with AuthorHouse Publishing. Last year,
I published a book containing pictures of my grandmothers teapot
collecti on enti tled Grandmothers Teapots. As a follow up to that book
I wanted to compile a collecti on of stories from various grandmothers
about their experiences and the infl uences in their lives.
There are many infl uenti al and strong women that can be found in our
own families. They are our grandmothers. These women have a story
to tell. They have experiences and wisdom, compassion and courage,
love and devoti on and can give encouragement someti mes when no
one else can. They love unconditi onally and someti mes devote their
lives to caring for their grandchildren.
I have had the priviledge to be loved by remarkable grandmothers. They
have encouraged my life and shared their stories. They remain part of
me and I will never forget their love. I wanted to write about what
makes these women so special and give the opportunity for readers to
enjoy the experiences of a few amazing grandmothers - strong women
who have infl uenced our lives.
I live in Chesapeake, Virginia and have recently become a grandmother.
My husband, Johnny and I have 2 grown children. Scott , our son and
Rebecca, our daughter, have blessed our lives. This past year, Rebecca
and her husband Derrell welcomed theirfi rst child, a daughter named
Vanessa. There are no words that can express how my heart feels when
she looks into my eyes.
