My grandmother passed away this past week. I’m hanging with my husband this weekend and just privately grieving. She was a kind and wonderful woman who was extremely generous. I lost my other grandmother a few
years ago, so I feel especially sad not having any grandparents around.
Grandparents are pretty special people – they see things in a different light and their wisdom has been earned. My grandmothers lived during a time when frugality was a virtue and being industrious was expected. Acquiring stuff wasn’t a priority for them, they focused on building their families into a generation of good people. Stuff breaks down over time while family grows stronger.
