Everything I need to know in life I learned from my Grandma

In loving memory of my grandma, the lessons she imparted to us:

  • Whether you think you can or you think that you can't, you're right
  • Orange juice is the miracle cure
  • If you leave hungry or sober it's your own fault
  • Keep your faith in God; with His help, you can do anything
  • Your health and your family are your greatest riches in life
  • Never stop learning
  • Age is a state of mind
  • It's not dessert without ice cream
  • Which is much better mushed
  • Sparkling cider, noisemakers, pots and pans are all that you need to celebrate New Year's Eve
  • It's hard work staying young but oh so worth it
  • Put on your earrings and pearls everyday
  • Make the effort every day to look nice; you'll feel so much more confident
  • Your education is the greatest investment you can make in yourself
  • It's 5 o'clock somewhere
  • You only get one shot at life so make sure to have fun
  • Stand up straight, put your shoulders back and be proud of your height
  • Enjoying opera, the theater and Two and a Half Men are not mutually exclusive
  • The gift of education is the second greatest gift you can give your children
  • Family is the first
  • You are never too old to ride in a Jeep
  • Flowers make the whole room look nicer
  • Have your everyday dishes match your china.  No one will ever know
  • Always apply to more than 3 colleges so they know how awesome you are
  • Every day deserves flowers

Grandma - forever in our hearts
You are so loved
