Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux
It's amazing how we remember some of the smallest, most seemingly inconsequential things.
The other day one of my granddaughters was helping me make the beds. "I remember making the beds with my own grandmother," I told her. And then my mind raced back decades ago to my "Nana." I could picture us standing side by side and remember her voice, "Tuck in the corners."
Later in the day I told this same granddaughter that she had been making good decisions and that she didn't have to ask me if she wanted something out of the refrigerator. "If you want some juice or fruit, you can just get it yourself."
"Nana," she said before bedtime, "When you said I could get my own snacks, it made me feel so good."
My comment had been such a casual, little thing. But it had made an impression on my granddaughter, and I sensed that she felt very loved.
What seemingly inconsequential things do you remember about your grandmother? Have they become precious memories?
