GRAND Magazine - March/April 2011 - (Page 15)

Tanner BY GLENDA BARRETT It happened after I walked the hall all day and heard talk of surgery, after the grumpy nurse ran me out of the hall three times because my ear was pressed to the door. The awesome moment occurred the moment I held you in my arms, touched your cheek, soft as a feather, looked into your big, blue eyes and realized that the same blood coursed through your tiny veins as my beloved ancestors passed on before me. How easily you captured me. You took a strong, independent woman and turned her into mush, compliant to your every need. I was not strong enough to fight against instinct or mother nature. It was then, I fully understood the meaning of the word “Grandson.” 14 GRAND MAR APR 2011
