Inspirational Guest Post by Katrina Newell: Grandma’s Hands

by Migdalia Rivera

While watching one of my favorite television shows, it was pleasantly interrupted by an ad singing the song “Grandma’s Hands” as it depicted a grandmother enjoying a moment with her grandchildren. As I enjoyed this short drama, I envisioned my own grandmother and thought about the things she taught me and the values she instilled in me. She made sure I attended church every Sunday and molded me into the fine woman I am today.

This fast-paced and overburdened era that we live in today provides little time to spend “quality time” with our grandmothers. “Grandma’s Hands” provided the backbone of our culture upbringing and marked the beginning of generations of great women.

So my Latinalicious sisters, in honor of Mother’s Day which is fast approaching, think about a special grandmother – either yours or someone else’s and do something nice for her. Also, don’t forget your mom and yourself, for we all deserve to be treated special not just on this day but everyday.

So true. Both of my grandmothers are no longer living. Treasure them while you have them with you.
