Today we are celebrating the life of my sweet grandmother “Mama”. She left us a very special book of memories as well as her favorite quotes and other advice. I will cherish these stories forever and recommend everyone take the time to record special memories like this for their loved ones.
Here are some of Mama’s favorite quotes:
“Sometimes we are so busy adding up our troubles that we forget to count our blessings”
“Be true to your own self”
“The honor that is lost in a moment cannot be restored in a hundred years”
“The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step”
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
“Dream dreams and act on them”
“Some things that happen are good, but there are going to be bad times also – I want you to learn how to deal with both” – Kathleen Zimmerman Thompson
I loved all of my time spent with Mama – she taught me to care for others before myself, to always write handwritten notes, and best of all she taught me how to cook her most delicious recipes – including macaroni & cheese, chocolate chess pie, and homemade biscuits. I am very thankful for all of the time we got to spend together. Love you Mama.
