This weekend we visited my grandmother in Boston. A few things that I love and admire about my grandmother:
She is super smart. She reads all the time and is incredibly knowledgeable about a whole range of topics, from how to make the best matzo balls to the ins and outs of Boston politics.
She was a beloved teacher for most of her adult life.
She is an accomplished pianist and bridge player.
She is a fabulous cook and continues to pass down her recipes to me.
She is unfailingly generous.
Despite the fact that her life has not been easy, she has the wisdom to see the many wonderful things that her life has brought her.
She is really funny.
