There is a saying “those who don’t have grandparents should buy some”.
By the nature of things, parents are supposed to love you unconditionally. Yet, the person that, most probably, loves you the most is your grandmother.
Discover in this article, 50 great grandmother quotes and celebrate this fantastic relationship.
We can only guess, the first of us who used positive reinforcement to educate children were grandmothers. Do you believe that? Because grandmothers are those people who:
- First, showed you how it feels to be loved no matter what you do
- Second, how can love move mountains
- Third, diplomacy – win easily others hearts
- Forth, cooking – your grandmother understood the best that a hungry mind doesn’t always have the most positive thoughts – didn’t she feed you before anything else?
- Fifth, forgiveness and intolerance – you can never say you love someone unconditionally if you’re not a master at forgiving and understanding. Could you?
The only thing your grandmother couldn’t teach you it’s how to live without her. She tried, but in the end, you have to learn that by yourself.
The most significant loss that wealth can cause is to be disconnected from your loved ones.
That can sound unbelievable, but the richer are we are, the far we can get from those who genuinely love us. In the old days, three or four generations lived under the same roof. In the modern days, most of us leave the nest when our mind is not yet prepared to face the world… Just because all of us have enough money to be alone.
Being wealthy can come at the very high price. You might feel lonely and, on top of that, bare the pain of knowing your parents and grandmother (grandparents) are lonely as well.
If you’re a grown up and allow life to carry you like a feather in the wind, being busy all the time, remember there is someone that’s doing almost nothing all day other than waiting for your call: Your grandmother… If you’re lucky enough to have her still. If you don’t, the memory of her, the things she taught you, can help you overcome pains and obstacles.
Grandmothers are amazing beings who love, who protect, who understand, wise people who should never die. Keep her in your memory, and she’ll always be with you.
