At Peace In The Graveyard

This Is A True Story


I love my little grandson

He goes everywhere with me

I love being his “Grammy”

He is truly a sight to see

He is always surprising me

He smarter than his age shows

Sometimes I wonder where he gets

The information that he knows

It was one cool spring morning

Just a few short weeks ago

When he did something spectacular

It wasn’t just for show

I took him to the cemetery

To put flowers upon her grave

Jax had never been there before

You wouldn’t believe the show he gave

He went right up to her headstone

One that he had never seen

He put his little arms around it

Kissed it and wiped it clean

Then the wind began to pick up

I watched this suddenly happy little boy

Run around a graveyard

Yelling “I run, I run, I run, I run with Grandma Joy!”

It just about blew my mind

He had only met her just one time

She had died when he was a baby

And she was in her prime

As I tried to leave after awhile

He screamed and yelled and cried

I put him back upon the ground

He ran to my uncle’s graveside

He did the same thing as he did before

He kissed the stone upon the name

He ran around some more

And now the wind was tame

I put him the car seat

This time without any fuss

I knew that this had been a special day

And that my mom had spent it with us!

      That is one of the most touching things I have ever heard. This little man is very close and open to the voice of God and was given a gistmost of us do not experience. I am glad you were there to be blessed also.

      It sounds like your grandson is a very special boy with a wonderful sense of intuition. What a great moment that I'm sure you'll never forget.

      Rated up, awesome, and beautiful.
