I remember the summers I spent in Oklahoma with my grandparents and my grandma telling me to drink my ice cold water. She was always making sure that we drank enough fluids since it was 100+ outside.
Looking back now, my grandma was always sharing with me her words of wisdom and health advice. She would always say, “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” Another favorite saying of mine that she would say is, “Pretty is as Pretty Does”. This was way before we ever heard of Forest Gump.
She was the perfect example of health. My grandmother and grandfather would eat mainly the food that they grew from their garden. My grandma would always go to Walmart to pick up her small suitcase of vitamins. She would also go for her nightly walks at dusk and pick up the cans to recycle. She had her morning beauty routine of putting on her makeup and her nightly routine of taking care of herself. She was a stickler on always cleaning your feet before bedtime and would tell me stories and rub my feet with lotion. Oh how I miss my grandma.
I asked some friends of mine if they remembered any special words of wisdom from their mothers. This is what some of them said:
- Angela England of Untrained Housewife says: “Choose Your Love and then Love Your Choice” – the key to a successful marriage. Carefully choosing whom you will love and then carefully loving the one that you chose. Brilliant and simple but profound.
- Shelly DeMotte Kramer of V3 says: “My greatest accomplishment as a parent, and as a mother, was to teach all my children to be survivors. Life isn’t easy, and I knew if I could give them that, that would be the greatest gift of all.” And she did.
- Zippy Sandler of Champagne Living says “My parents taught me to “dare to be different.” Coming from a family of artists (and going into the arts myself) it always reminded me that I needed to make my mark to stand out.”
