Grandma’s house, a place of refuge
We all need a place of refuge. A place where we can go to when the world seems to be beating us down. A place where we know that nobody is going to judge us. A place where we know we are loved. A place where there are warm arms just waiting to hug us. A place where we can go, just to be safe. This place is Grandma’s house.
You will have your days when you feel like you just can’t seem to get ahead in life, in school, in your home, in your job. You will have those days when you feel like you want to quit, because it just isn’t worth it. Please don’t quit, just come to my house, and I will help you through it. I will hug you and tell you that you can do it. I will give you some yummy food, whatever is your favorite at the time. I will let you just be in the safety of someone who loves you.
This is an I love you rock!
You will have your days when perhaps there are bullies that seem to be after you. Bullies can come in many forms. They can be kids at your school. They can be adults who are treating you bad. They can be someone that you love. They can be your boss, or another person you work with. Whoever the bully is, walk away and come to my house. I will help you figure out how to deal with them. Unfortunately we live in a world that judges people really harsh. For some reason, people think it is okay to be mean to others. That is never okay. There is never a good enough reason, to be a bully to someone else. Grandma’s house is a safe place for you to come. Nobody will ever hurt you there.
Grandpa and I, we will always have a safe place in our home for you. No matter what age you are, or what the storm is in your life, you can always find a place of refuge from it at our house. I will always do my best, to make sure that you feel that way.
If you ever doubt this, I would encourage you to just ask your parents about how much I will fight for my kids and grandkids. There is nobody more important in the world to me, than you guys. I will always be there for you, and together we can solve any problems. There is nothing that I am not willing to tackle to help you overcome any challenges. And if you just need a listening ear, I have two of them, and I have a zipper on my mouth that somedays, I might even close, just to sit and listen to you.
Don’t ever forget that my home is a place of refuge from the storm for you. No matter the storm, my door will always be open. In Grandma’s house, no judging allowed. Just hugs and kisses. Oh yes, we have to have these!
You are special
I hope you know how much
