What are the most important memories or lessons you remember from your grandparents?
What impact did they have on your life?
Each set of grandparents I have taught me that decisions made earlier in life affect the senior years. All four of my grandparents were loving people, but one of them smoked extensively, and died when I was only 2. The other 3 did not smoke and led active lifestyles, still going strong in their 80s and 90s.
They remind me that using certain substances has its consequences, while engaging in other recreational activities can be beneficial.
My Mammaw (grandmother) taught all her grandchildren to believe in the Lord, trust in Him always tell the truth no matter what, and He will never let you down.
If my grandmother is not in Heaven, Heaven does not exist.
My mother's folks taught me how to make pretty things, how to make music together as a family, and how great food tastes that's grown in your own garden. Her mother also gave my parents exercises to help me learn to speak well.
My father's dad died when i was five and I don't remember him. His mother taught me that card games (and by extension, board games) can be fun family events, and how to walk and appreciate dogs. She taught me that you can reupholster your own furniture and, by extension, make other things for your home, instead of buying them.
I remember how caring, uplifting, and supportive my grandmother was. I will always miss her, and keep her memories near to my heart.
My grandparents taught us the value of continuing education as well as a love for music. They always had a garden and were self-sufficient. My grandmothers always had something to send home with us when we visited like loaf of bread, a bottle of jam or other goodies. They also gave service in their community and church.
