The inspiration of a grandmother

My grandmother taught me so much in her lifetime many lessons I will never forget.

We called her Mama Dot and she taught me to appreciate the little things in life, be grateful for what you have and never be materialistic.

She taught me how to enjoy working in your yard and making it beautiful. Then you can stand back and look at what you created.

I have several things in my yard that came from hers. Now I know the reason she always shared things from her yard was so she could always be remembered. 

She loved listening to the birds sing and feeding them. I think that is one reason I love doing this.

She spoke from the heart and was never fake she did not believe in sugar coating anything. I guess that is where I get the guts to voice my opinions and speak from the heart.

Today so many people sugar coat everything they say and they are just so fake.

Mama Dot was very special to me and I knew I could always count on her whenever I needed some advice, a hug, or just a friend. I knew I could count on her inspirational words of wisdom.

Her unconditional love for me meant it was a real love with no strings attached her love was genuine.

 

 

 

Grandparents

Every child should be given the opportunity to have a relationship with their grandparents.

A grandparents relationship should never over – step the boundaries of a child’s relationship with their parents. A good grandparent never talks badly about the parents. It is all about showing respect for the parents.

I am thankful we had wonderful grandparents in our life. They showed us what unconditional love really was, but they knew their boundaries and never interfered with us and our relationship with our parents.

My grandparents were great role models and I am thankful they showed me how to be a good grandparent.
