29 March 2010: My Grandmother Always Said……

Grandmothers are always speaking words of wisdom. Little phrases that we tend to reach for and think on in times of need, or sometimes just for comfort and reassurance. A grandmother could always pack a big life-lesson in a few words or a short phrase…most times serious, sometimes funny, always thought-provoking.

I didn’t spend a lot of time with my maternal grandmother, Julia Ann GATES, and never met my paternal grandmother, Fannie Mae LAWRENCE. I often wonder what little sayings or gems to live by they would have given me.

The 2nd edition of the CoAAG, Grandma’s Hand: Grandmothers and Their Influence On The Family, is fast approaching, and will go live on Monday, April 19th. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 12th. To get you in the mood and spark some of those memories, I thought it would be fun to share some of those grandmother “words of wisdom”….those one-liners that carried more lessons than a year of school. They will be a wonderful preview to the many stories coming up in the CoAGG. Just leave a comment with your favorite saying or quote from your grandmother. I’ll share all those grandmother “gems of wisdom” in the carnival on April 19th. Come on share the love. My Grandmother Always Said……
