Go hug your grandmothers and grandfathers. I don’t care if you call them Granny, Pop-pop or MeMaw- just do it. While you are at it, hug your parents and your siblings. Trust me.
For my 100th post I wanted to write about something special. Something unique. Something thought-provoking. I have chosen to write about my Great Grandma Leona.
A recent visit to Great Grandma Leona’s house gave me the perfect opportunity to do what I do best- ask questions.
The answers? Never riding a bike. Not having a birthday cake as a child. Growing up without either of your parents. Killing chickens on the farm. Speaking German as a child. Losing part of your finger. Simply put- fascinating.
It is important to ask these questions while you still can. Find out who you are, where your ancestors are from. You may be surprised.
