Thanks for sharing your memories of your grandmother. And a Happy and healthy New Year to her! It always amazes me how even though life was difficult, it was the simple things that inspired and gave meaning to it. It is a quality which, like you say, is a privilege to have in your family's history and to continue today.

One of my best memories traveling is staying with a Greek man and woman who were goat farmers on an island for a month. I don't speak Greek and they didn't speak English, but sitting there at the table with the warm goat's milk, sugar, bread and cheese, drawing pictures to each other, made me think it doesn't get any better....And I still believe that.
