10 Darn Good Pieces of Advice from Grandma

We find ourselves quoting her all the time!

If there was ever anyone as wise as Grandma, we have yet to meet them. After a lifetime of making due, taking care, and learning to be themselves, grandmothers are in the peak position to offer the very best advice. Now that we’re closer to Grandma’s age, we can more fully appreciate all the sage advice she gave us over the years.
