Is your Grandmother cooler than you? Mine is.
Who doesn’t love a trip to Grandma’s house? The presence of a grandmother (even if she’s not your own) is nurturing, grounding, and full of random bouts of wisdom. There are so many gems grandmothers offer, and we often forget or never get a chance to thank them for all the goodness they bring to life.
One of my grandmothers passed away many years ago, leaving a trail of love, laughter, and greatly-appreciated kookiness in her wake. The other one is still partying and creating serious change across the United States via Amtrak trains. They’re the epitome of badass.
If your granny is still around, call her up and thank her for the following. She’ll brush it off with her old school humility, but it will warm her heart.
