Saving grace

Sir Francis Bacon wrote If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them.” My grandmother embodied this grace that he speaks of, and I have been trying my best to emulate her all of my life!

Josephine, my mother's mother past away over twenty years ago, but she left such a strong imprint on my heart. She was a citizen of the earth in every way and probably my favorite person I have ever known. She was an absolute joy to be around and I think most everyone who knew her felt the same way. I feel so blessed to have had someone in my life  that I can say that about. Thank you Grandma!
