4 Words Of Wisdom My Grandma Left With Me

4 Words Of Wisdom My Grandma Left With Me

I miss you, think about you, and wish that you could be apart of my now.

To my dearest grandma who would be so proud,

I miss you, think about you, and wish that you could be apart of my now. It is hard knowing that I spent my childhood thinking you would never go away. As a little girl, I thought of you as a best friend and an everlasting companion.

My life has changed a lot since you have left and I wish every day that you could be in the present with me, be a call away, and have the wise tale advice you use to give so carelessly.

I have advice that I carry within my heart each and every day thanks to you:

1. "Come while the moon is shining bright"

You always taught me to live each moment to the fullest. Having fun and living stress-free is actually a key to life happiness. This quote means to share your love with anyone who is willing to receive it any time of the day, night and our lives.

2. Be smart

A smart woman can accomplish anything. I felt you always knew that I was going to find my own path to secure happiness. You always pushed and encouraged me to be smart, thoughtful and make careful decisions to show the world what I am truly capable of.

3. The countryside is where your heart lies

"Less is more," she used to always say. I would sit at the table with my grandma and share my dreams of one day living in a huge city where hundreds of lights and busy people surrounded me. She knew that was what I wanted but continued to show me the importance of keeping home close to my heart. As she was from the country, for the rest of my life I will appreciate canned-jelly and a big open field.

4. Love is important

From your past, you have instilled in my head and heart that I am meant to be loved and not by any love. The way you loved me was simple, genuine, and carefree. You taught me to love in the same way. Because of you, I know that I am supposed to be loved for the rest of my life with a kind heart, good soul and a person that will stand by my side forever and always. A simple love is what I am looking for, thanks to you.

You have taught me some of the greatest lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Since you have been gone, I am proud to tell you that I have grown into a confident woman who isn't scared to take this life on and live each and every moment to my fullest capability.

I wish I could tell you about college, but I feel as you already know. There have been times in the craziness of life when I have felt a sense of relief and know everything will be okay. I think you might be out there.

Grandma, I know I am becoming the woman you have always wanted to see me become. I am living each day to the fullest, taking in this worlds beauty and keeping you in my mind and heart. Thank you for opening my eyes before you had to leave me. You will continue to be in my prayers.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!
