OH, sweet babe of mine, granddaughter – blood line
I can not wait to hold you in my arms
The daughter of my youngest son
Your daddy is full of charms

I am your grandma, you will see
I have lots of stories for you to hear
How your daddy when he was young
Played silly tricks on me and would run.

You have been born in a family of love
We value family time, board games, old fashioned stuff
You will understand in time, it is who we are
Camping with us and marshmallow fluff!

Picking flowers, learning about bugs, which ones are safe
Which ones you run from
You will learn how to cast a fishing pole
And put the worm on all by yourself.

Homemade quilts from grandma you will receive
To keep you warm around the campfire filled with family
Snacks are simple, hot-dogs on a stick, songs of old on my guitar
As long as my voice can remember the chords.

Micheal rowed the boat ashore—
Jordan river is chilly and cold, allllllleuhahhh,
Rye Mae you are in our soul,we will keep you from the cold..

See how silly your grandma will be, I will tickle your ribs silly
Sing until you say no more.
Guess what,, Grandma is back for sure
To remind you of where you began.

Simple folks with big hearts, and I will sing over and over again
Leave my imprint of who I am,, your grandma
Lets say it again, your grandma, thats who I am
Grandma LIN, makes you grin, love you babe, I am your kin.

This is dedicated to my grand daughter born today at 4:52am
January 05, 2010
My babe, my son, has experienced his first born.
Rya Mae, this is from your silly grandma,, I love you, Thank the LORD for you, and I am so blessed,

“meet Rya Mae,, born at 4:52am Jan.05,2010
8lbs. 1oz. we are in our glory,, she was due New Years Day,, but thats OK, she is here in our lives now,, this is pic my son sent from his cell phone,


I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.
