And Grandma leaned forward and tucked several folded bills into my pocket, wordlessly. I could hear the worry in my mom's voice; the despair as my grandma's vitals were not improving, and yet I still remained in a limbo of disbelief. People were a priority for her. But she had her moments of greatness. Grandma was born June 9, 1919, and within a few days her father died suddenly and unexpectedly, her mother left with three small children and meager resources.

What My Grandmother Taught Me about the Church

As soon as her mind crosses the memory of us being raised by my father without a mother, she would cry. I cherish the time I spend with her each day, for she is proof that informal education is wealth, and that there is richness in our stories and our wisdom as women.

Her early years, I think, formed in her a deep sense to welcome and to include others.

And remember that no matter what, you will find it in yourself to continue, find peace past your pain, and never lose hope. I use this for removing my nail polish.

He never saw his family ever again. He speaks eloquently on being raised by two moms: What you're voting here isn't to change us. I moved to open the door again, but my grandmother stopped me. Grandma always seemed harried, and a little crotchety. Inside that room lives poetry. Death stood in the entrance, wings bleeding shadow off their pinions.

If I thought a glimpse of hell was scary, it was nothing compared to dead Aunt Esther. She was a generous and strong Eastern European woman. She was a matriarch, and we are a matriarchal family. His mother packed him a bag and told him to go down South, where it was safer. When each of my cousins was getting married, she offered them a cow so there children could always have milk. Today we buried my 87-year-old grandmother.
