The love month of February could not be celebrated this year without giving you the recognition you so well deserve. There are few people more deserving, and who should be loved every day than you, our Jamaican grandmas.
You are the epidimy of the word sacrifice. For years, and for some a lifetime, you have sacrificed much of your life for your grandchildren, and for most of you, without a word of thanks from their parents. When I thing about your life, I think the ultimate sacrifice you made, was taking care of your grandchildren for those of your own children who migrated to foreign lands. Some never returned, and you were left to raise a second family you probably never planned for. What a gift to us! Most of us didn’t recognize that gift until we were adults trying to navigate our lives. This month, all the grandchildren you have sacrificed for, want to say, “THANK YOU GRANDMA.”
