My Sister Grace

Horses Pictures, Images and Photos

My sister Grace is a joy to behold
A beautiful smile always on her face
Courageously bold, heart of gold
No one can take her place

My sweet sister Grace
Loves horses
She is a bouquet of lilacs and lace
Now, studying college courses

Her will power is amazingly strong
She was diagnosed with breast cancer
Something had to be wrong
We didn't know the answer

Grace goes for her yearly mammogram
Had to be some mistake
Felt like receiving a bad telegram
This was our Grace for goodness sake

Hearing the news
We prayed for her healing
Had no clues
Felt like some one was stealing

Her spirits were low
But she would face
And let us know
That she was full of grace

Through prayers and medical care
Grace embraced each day
Bad days, she had her share
She would fight, she wanted to stay

My sister Grace is one of a kind
We could never keep pace
She has a brilliant mind
She is our "Amazing Grace."

2007 Janet Irene Griffin
Grace, love you! My sister Grace was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002.
As of today, July 17, 2007 she is a breast cancer survivor who appreciates life.
