“What should you leave to your grandchildren when you are dead? Only what you leave them in their head.”
When a writer friend said this to me at a party a couple years ago, I decided to begin writing every day, committing to paper life lessons, stories of adventure, family sagas, delicious recipes, worldly travels and life as a wife, mother and Gramma to 20 grandchildren, who call me Honey. With the stroke of a pen, Gramma Good was born, and has since expanded into a community of close to 100,000 family women of all ages.
This Is My Story…
I raised my family in Honolulu, Hawaii. After being widowed in my forties, I moved to the mainland with my daughters and eventually on to a second marriage. My husband Shelly and I now have a wonderful family, a blended family, with 20 grandchildren (and I can’t forget our Wheaten Terrier, Orchid). How lucky is that!
My life is a mixture of the bitter and the sweet, the joys and the sorrows – I’ve traveled the world making lasting friendships, survived cancer and lived through the horror of a family suicide. Through example I have shown my family how to make lemonade out of lemons and see the glass half full.
Gramma Good is a collection of lessons, love and adventures from not only myself, but from a fantastic group of contributors and writers, each adding their own spice to the recipe.
Women of all ages have sent in so many questions and for that reason I started the “Ask Gramma Good” column that you can see in the right sidebar. Ask me anything and I will post my answer there. I love answering your questions.
If you prefer to read posts in your email, please subscribe to my weekly newsletter on the top right of the web page.
As grammas, mothers and daughters, we meet at Gramma Good – a place for the entire family of women to laugh and learn together. I’m so happy to have you join our community!
