Grandma taught me a lot things over the years, like:
Do your exercises.
Orange juice is really good for you.
Keep a bread drawer.
Love your husband for always.
Hold your children tight.
Be a Democrat.
Travel when you can.
If you have a good job, hold onto it.
Save your money.
Where there's room in the heart,
there's room in the home.
Salt & pepper shakers make a great collection.
Turtles make good pets.
When you make coffee, make it strong.
Then, drink it with a splash of whole milk.
Family is what life is all about.
Looking through old photo albums of Great Grandma
and shuffling through her closet (many times, for as long as I can remember) -
I realize that my love of patterns and colors that don't really match,
surely came from her. So, thanks for being a unique, Grandma. It rubbed off. :0)
...and I miss you too.
