This is my second publication with AuthorHouse Publishing. Last year, I published a book containing pictures of my grandmother's teapot collection entitled "Grandmother's Teapots". As a follow up to that book I wanted to compile a collection of stories from various grandmothers about their experiences and the influences in their lives.
There are many influential 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 devotion and can give encouragement sometimes when no one else can. They love unconditionally and sometimes 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 influenced 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 their first child, a daughter named Vanessa. There are no words that can express how my heart feels when she looks into my eyes.
