I found some of my Grandma’s old ornaments when I unpacked my Christmas decorations last week and it made me think back of some of my favorite memories of her.
A few things about my Grandma:
- She loved Young & The Restless. My mother did not allow us to watch soaps at home so we could only watch at Grandma’s house. AND WE LOVED IT! Victor, Nicki, Phyllis…agghhhh!
- She made the best spagetti and meatballs. I learned later she used a canned sauce but it never changed my mind. I still loved it more than all the homemade sauce my Mom made (sorry Mom!).
- She mailed me cookies and candied orange slices when I was away at college my Freshman year. I loved seeing those care packages in the dorm mailroom.
- She had a dressing table in her room and gave us her almost-empty powder compacts to play with. She had her perfume lined up on that table and I still stop in my tracks if I smell her scent in a crowd.
When she passed away, every grandchild received some things to remember her by. This is what makes me smile every day when I see it….
