What Grandma Taught Me: A Worldwide Tribute to Grandmothers and Their Legacies (Paperback)
This is a collection of memories and stories from the heart about people who hold a special place in the world and in our hearts: grandmothers. We were inspired to share these stories because of the huge impact our grandmothers had in our lives. They gave us a sense of peace, safety, strength, and unconditional love. We are allowed to be whoever we want to be when we are living in our grandmothers' world. These stories evoke cultures and images from around the world, from warm Caribbean breezes to small town America, to the South of France, to former Soviet countries, and to vibrant Asian villages. It is our hope that they will carry you back in time to your own cherished memories of your grandmother or other loved ones who sustained and strengthened you in your childhood and still have an impact on your life. Maybe this collection of stories will help you embrace old memories and recreate that sense of safety and strength so you can take a little step into a future you may only have imagined when you were in the encircling arms of your special loved ones. We hope that by sharing our grandmothers with you, their legacies will live on and they will touch your lives with love, too.
