Love, Grandma

I have many blessings in my life for which to be thankful. One of the most profound blessings is my grandma.

I spent a lot of time with my grandparents growing up. As much as I remember, they poured out unconditional love on me.

My grandma seems to have all the patience and time in the world for me. When I was young, I used to sit in your lap and “twig” her hair (that’s the word we used to basically describe me twirling her hair into big knots with my finger).

My grandma was also a chef and would spend a great deal of time in the kitchen preparing something delicious. She says she never wrote down her recipes, she just has them in her head.

One of the ingredients grandma is often credited with having by family members is stubbornness. They also like to say I have it. If I act like grandma, then I take that as a compliment.

One of the ways experts suggest feeling better and easing depression is to spend time with loved ones and friends. Fortunately for me, grandma isn’t shy about heaping helpings of love on me. Perhaps that’s her most famous recipe of all.
