10 Things My Grandmother Taught Me

Our ancestors are filled with so much knowledge and life experience. My grandmother passed away in 2003.  We were close. I spent many weeks each summer with her, listening to her, watching her, learning from her.  I miss my grandmother everyday but I am so grateful for the things she taught me while she was here. Today, I am feeling compelled to share the following with you…

The Top 10 Things my Grandmother Taught Me:

  • It is beyond important to use hand moisturizer daily. My grandmother, aunt and mom have hands that cannot be forgotten. To think about their hands now makes me smile.
  • Even when it feels like the world is coming down around you, one person’s smile can change your entire outlook.
  • Laugh often and easily, especially at yourself.
  • It is as important to tell your friends how much they mean to you as it is to tell your family. Friends can move mountains.
  • Be generous with your money and time.
  • Don’t serve microwavable pancakes. Although convenient, they’re really chewy and they taste terrible.
  • Sometimes the smallest token makes the biggest impact.
  • Living should be a bigger priority than making aliving. Don’t worry about what society thinks is right. Your own lived experience is the best teacher.
  • Keeping your keys on a spiral plastic wristlet may not look so cool, but makes you the most popular grandma in town to kids.
  • Unconditional love is the greatest gift you can ever give.
