Question: Will You Tell Me a Story About Your Grandma?

What makes a Grandmother memorable?

Most of you who are reading this are Grandmas yourselves.

If you aren’t, maybe you HAVE a Grandma?  (Even if she is no longer on this earth, she is still your Grandma.)

Passing Down the Love is all about Grandmas and their Grandkids.

And we’d love to hear your stories.  We are trying to discover what it is that makes a Grandmother memorable.

Your own Grandma is special.

Reflecting back on the memories of your Grandma and the moments you spent together, think about what she has meant to you.  There is probably no one else, outside of your parents, who could have loved you more.

Even after you’ve grown up, there will always be fond memories associated with Grandma time.

Please consider sharing a positive story about your Grandma.  Tell me what you remember.

These stories will be between you and me unless you give me permission to share them.

So here is the short questionnaire.  What makes a Grandma memorable?

When I have received enough responses, I plan to create a post about your stories and share some of them there.

Will you tell me about your Grandma?

Thank you for taking time to connect with me about your Grandma.

About MY Grandmas:

My Grandma Ruth passed away when I was 14 years old.  I have very fond memories of her, even though I grew up in a different state.  Grandma was a seamstress and worked for Bobbie Brooks Co.  She made matching outfits for me and my sister.  We were so cute!  I get my blonde hair and green eyes from her,  Because of Grandma Ruth, I felt like I belonged. – the rest of my family are brown-haired and brown-eyed.

My Grandma Grace lived into her 90’s and even met several of her Great-grandkids, my boys being two of them.  She was a nurse’s aid in the hospital nursery and was there when I was born.  She lived alone for as long as I can remember, but always made room for the entire family in her small spaces any time we showed up.  Grandma made the best Christmas cookies.  Before she passed away, she gave me her Christmas tree cookie cutter and the recipe for her Brown Sugar Cookies and her Lemon Whippersnapper recipe.  She asked me, the oldest Granddaughter, to continue making these for our family after she was gone.  I am proud to say that this tradition continues today.

Since I was near the end of the line on grandchildren on both my Mom and my Dad's sides of the family, both of my grandmothers were already quite elderly when I was born, and they both passed away when I was about 12. My paternal grandmother lived next door and would tend me sometimes during the day when my Mom had errands or appointments. I loved having her read to me, and her cookie jar and candy tin were always full of wonderful treats. One of my favorite memories is watching her sit in the kitchen and iron the clothes. We visited with my Mother's parents several times a year, and they would usually feed us a nice dinner and then present us with a special treat such as store bought twinkies! I have photos of this grandmother when she was young, and I believe that she was a true beauty! She nursed my grandfather through the great flu epidemic while they were engaged to be married, and then raised a beautiful family.

While I am visiting from the A to Z Blogging challenge, I will leave a link to a post I made about my grandmother instead. She was everything to us. https://kingmengi.wordpress.com/2016/03/14/maw-maw/

I never was very good at them, but My Dad (82) still does the crossword puzzles every day to stay "sharp". Sounds like your Maw Maw was an inspiration. Nice tribute to her! Thanks for the link.

Such a sweet post. I was fortunate to live near and spend lots of time with two grandmothers and two great-grandmothers. One of my great-grandmas used to play hide-the-thimble with us, which is something I still talk about with my cousins periodically

Being with my Grandma is where I got to know and spend time with my cousins, too. Thanks!
