Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.Shannon Alder
A couple of days ago my husband told me one of his employees asked him if I had been a model. He wondered why and she said, I walked like a model. It was a nice compliment, however it made me smile. I am barely 5ft. 3 in. If I was once a model, I became much shorter as I aged. When I was growing up my grandmother had me walk around the house with a book on my head. If you don’t keep your head up and your shoulders back, the book will quickly fall to the floor. I guess that would account for my good posture.
My grandmother was not only a grandmother, she was a grand lady. Her legacy to me was more than good posture. She shaped the person I am in many ways. When faced with decisions in my life, I often remember her advice.
Some of the things my grandmother told me:
Don’t wear your clothes too tight. It will look like you gained weight and can’t afford to buy new clothes.
If a woman had the first baby and a man had the second baby, there wouldn’t be a third.
Talk is cheap. It’s actions that matter.
If you have good taste it doesn’t matter how much money you have. If you don’t have good taste money won’t help.
Regarding birth control and the church. Is the Pope going to buy the babies shoes?
She also said don’t tell tales out of school and would probably hate that I’ve shared this.
