Stories for my grandchild
BY SUSAN 'HONEY' GOOD

B

ased on my personal feelings, I am convinced there is an
unspoken bond between a grandmother and her grandchild. I loved and admired
my grandfathers, as I am sure
you did, but I loved and had a
bond with my grandmothers. I
admired them. I listened to the
tone of their voice and their
laugh. I noticed their gait, I
copied values and mannerisms,
style of dress and even the way
they decorated their table for
the holidays. There was a tie, a
link, an unsaid pledge, a bond
of love between us. They are
forever a part of who I am.
We are descendants on the
same tree of life.
From generation-to-generation, we are now the
grandmothers. We share that
same bond with our grandchildren as we did with our
grandmothers.
And for those reasons
and many more, when an
email popped up in my inbox
from Abrams Books in New York inviting me to author a book,
I felt the following emotions; disbelief and shock, excitement
and wonderment, appreciation and gratitude and an OMG!, I am
going to be the author who will have the privilege to write the
prompts that will enable a grandmother to write her life story

for her grandchildren. Suddenly, I was able to reel in the enormity of my task, the importance of this little jewel, Stories for
my Grandchild: A Grandmother's Journal. It hit me in a magical
way and I was over the top, elated
because I was giving
back to grandmothers
around the world the
ability to answer in their
handwriting the story of
their life and the history
of their family tree and
gift this heirloom journal
to their grandchildren.
Stories for my Grandchild:
A Grandmother's Journal
is a keepsake to pass
down from generation to
generation.
What touched me as I got
further and further into my
writing was the bond I was
beginning to feel with grandmothers I would never meet
because we are all co-authors
of Stories for my Grandchild:
A Grandmother's Journal.
How special. How meaningful
for me.
The book is completed. How
do I feel? As I told my editor, who has become my friend, "Writing
this little jewel and working with you has been the most rewarding
experience I have had since I started, Honey Good."
