The next Grilled Grandma

Related Posts with ThumbnailsFor the Grilled Grandma feature here on Grandma's Briefs, I've shone the spotlight on a variety of grandmas, a variety of ages. The oldest grandma I've grilled was 98 (she's my grandma). At the other end of the spectrum is Suzanne, this week's Grilled Grandma, who became a grandma at the age of 48.

Being a young grandma doesn't mean Suzanne doesn't have sage advice, though. In fact, her response to my question of "What do you most want to pass along to your grandchild?" is advice each one of us could -- and should -- put into play, no matter our age:

I'd like to pass on the understanding that none of us are perfect and that each day is a new day to try to become better than we were the day before.  That forgiveness is the best medicine for ourselves and those who we feel have wronged us, that honesty is very important as it sets a foundation for all relationships.

You'll find more wisdom -- and plenty of wit! -- in Suzanne's Grilled Grandma feature, posted right HERE.

Today's question:

What one trait of your grandmother's stands out the most in your mind?

My answer: My grandmother enjoyed a bit of snuff now and then ... and seemed to think none of us kids noticed the can she kept nearby for spitting into. It made her seem a bit of a rebel to me because she was a southern lady, but that didn't seem too lady-like to me.
