old and new, tied together
like the large ball of string
grandma saved and added to
for more than fifty years
a grandmotherly thing to do
not just save string, but
string together family
otherwise lacking connection
without strings attached
her love brought us together
nurtured and helped us grow
like tender young flowers in her garden
each expression of her love
a thread of hope
spun out to us
just when we needed it
even her unassuming smile
unraveled us, bringing laughter
at times tears
always helping us find ourselves
even after all these years
grandma’s ball of string is still working
connecting us to what matters most
