I’m thankful for…
…my other Grandmother.
I’ve written about Grandma Mamie before. She even has her own category on my Blog. And so I wanted to add a little story about how her creativity, her ability to get things done, and her focus on fashion continues to inspire me long after she has left this world.
Grandma lived as if there was nothing she couldn’t do…from painting a house, to fearlessly getting on her roof and changing her windows every year well into her 80’s, to making a homemade spaghetti dinner for more than 50 people, to making jewelry that she loved.
She was also a master seamstress who made many of her own dresses, made clothes for her granddaughters, and made curtains and furniture coverings.
She made it a point to always look nice, even if she wasn’t going out. She was never without lipstick, rouge, and nicely coiffured hair.
Although I admit I could never do all of the things she did, I do think about how enterprising she was and allow it to guide and motivate me, especially when I’m facing something that seems impossible.
