she dusted with it, too . . .
with apron held out wide . . .
We'd sit awhile upon the porch
a mess of beans we'd clean . . .
string 'em first ~ then snap 'em
awwwww~ you know what I mean ~
For the always hungry old~fashion'd stove
she'd tote kindlin from the shed . . .
"My apron sure comes in handy"
so worn out her face all red ~
So much love 'n comfort ~ tenderness
given to us for so many years . . .
just can't think about those precious times
without my eyes filling up with tears ~
To some just a worn~out piece of cloth
but, oh my, not so to me . . .
My Grandmother's Magic Apron
like her, lives forever in my memory !
In memory of my darlin' grandmother,
Mary Jane Bowlin
Sweetest angel e'er lived!
I love & miss you, darlin' grandmother,
