Ce que J’ai Appris de Grand-mere Callicutt

Things I learned from Grandma Callicutt

Vessie Cole Callicutt

Today would have been Grandma C's 88th birthday. I grew up just steps from grandma's front door and when I got home from school I would make a bee-line into her arms. Grandma was a strong, spirited and loving person. She always spoiled me and I always let her. She loved gardening, traveling and she was a top-notch cook. Throughout all those years I now know that many of the things I do and believe today are a direct result of what Grandma taught me. This post is dedicated to everything I learned from Grandma “C”.

  1. Keep your house clean and tidy – you never know who might drop in
  2. Select beautiful dishes of solid white – you'll be able to set the table for any season and the dishes will never clash
  3. Sing a gospel song when you are sad – ain't nothing like an old timey hymnal to lift your spirits
  4. Serve something Peppermint at Christmas (preferably a peppermint cake – it's really hard to beat)
  5. Never be afraid to voice your opinion – if you don't no one else will....or can
  6. Keep at least one pair of yard shoes by the door and never wear them inside (otherwise you'll have alot more cleaning to do)
  7. You should never be bored – there's always something to pull in the garden or clean in the house
  8. Drive fast and smart – speed is a good thing
  9. Use a cream or lotion on your face at morning and night (this is a must do – Grandma's skin was amazing)
  10. Always have dessert – it'll make any meal seem amazing if if your eating leftovers

This concludes my list. Although there are other words of wisdom I gained from grandma the thing I miss the most is her smile and her laugh. She really had a great one!
