Words From My Grandmother

I wanted to share some of the words I received in a letter from my grandmother today...

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
Promise yourself to talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
Promise to make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
Promise yourself to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

    I miss my grandma terribly - she lived until 99, feisty and strong until the end, and I admired and loved her so much.
