Grandma was Plump!
Today while looking for a cute Thanksgiving blinky for by blog, I came across this one. It caught my eye because having your loved ones homes is such a blessing but the other reason was because it reminded me of my dear Grandma Mary. She was a jolly (plump) woman who loved her sons and grandkids. She loved to cook for us and she did enjoy her cooking! If you asked for ham for a Sunday dinner, you got ham and roast beef! Same with pies and cookies. She lead a wonderful and simple life with very little but lived with love and thankfulness. This got me to thinking ... when did "grandmas" have to stop looking like the one shown here and had to start looking like Joan Collins?
She looked so huggable and I loved hugging her! Her plumpness was so comforting and reassuring. That's what I remember most about her and how she loved us and her wonderful smile. I certainly thought she was beautiful because of this. Maybe this is how our grandchildren should remember us and not our waist size? It's something to think about.
