It seems like every other day we are meeting with someone who has heard about The Grannies and wants to know more!
Today was one of those days. We met with a young woman who was intrigued with the little bit she had overheard about our intended trip. As we sat down I was impressed with her telling us a bit of her life; how she overcame adversity and is not simply a survivor but a thriver.
So when she started asking questions and giving us some feedback I was doubly impressed with her abilities. She was actually excited about “Two Grannies on the Road”! She (I am guessing here) is probably in her late twenties or early thirties. And she was excited about GRAND MOTHERS(?)
Well, there is more here than meets the eye. She has a mentor that is my age (yes, I am 68! Want to make something out of it?) This mentor sounds like the kind of person I want to know! Apparently, she has a number of grandkids and one of them calls her his Spunky Grandmother. That’s a woman I need to meet!
The project of 2Gs is that we want to show this country that you don’t have to crawl into a ball and give up just because you are getting older. We can bounce out of our Spanx tightened bottoms and become an instant winner with the young-uns by inspiration and example. We can make them laugh . . . at us, at themselves, at politicians and movie stars and little brothers and aging parents. Etc. Etc. Etc. . . . . . .
And laugh we will. Except I need to be very careful. As we were driving back home Beth got me laughing about something. (I know, hard to believe right?) I was behind the wheel and my eyes got so tight from laughing, just like my mom’s did, that I couldn’t see one thing! This is going to be a biiiig problem! I can’t and won’t stop laughing!
What’s a girl to do?
Ginny, The older, funner granny!
