Chapter One

I am your Ema, your Grandma.

I love to be with you — to play, explore, talk, give you cuddles or just be silly.

My speech might sound funny and you have to figure out what I say.

I might eat slowly. You can play while I finish.

My fingers might not want to work right. Then you can show me how you tie a string or paint a picture.

I might have a hard time holding something. Then you can show me how strong you are.

I might get tired on our walks and tell you my legs have turned to rubber. Then you have to wait for me.

Meet the Author

Eloise Lovelace is a retired special education teacher with ALS, an incurable disease that wreaks havoc on the body but leaves the intellect untouched. She resides in the coastal mountain community of Boulder Creek, California, where she enjoys the beauty of nature with her husband and two retrievers. She has two daughters and three young grandchildren. Her desire is to leave these children, and children everywhere, with the message that, though a grandmother's body may not always work for her, her mind will remain alive and her love will never wane.
