A Teachable Heart asked who is your Titus 2 mentor?
Like I said in this post, I had a wonderful childhood with very loving parents. In addition to a great family life, my adoring grandparents also lived in our small town until I was 10-years old. So when I was not at home or in school, I was at my second home---my Mimi and Papaw’s house.
At their home, a majority of my time was spent shadowing Mimi’s every move---and move we did! We were always sewing, cooking, gardening, learning and talking. Mimi tutored me in math, taught me cooking short cuts, and showed me how to entertain.
She is still teaching me.
Looks like her energy matches that of my four kids, eh? :-)
My grandmother grew up in hard times. She remembers working as a dishwasher for a restaurant when she was very young, just to make ends meet after her father died. However, her hardships and age have never made her bitter or any less of an independent thinker. She has always had a way of seeing the best in everyone. If life handed her lemons, she never settled for just making lemonade! She was much more likely to put together lemon fruit cups, with lit candles and a lace tablecloth. :-)
Mimi always encouraged hard work and new thought, graciously entertained those who came to her home, and spent all of her spare time for others. She is certainly an "acts of service person," in the way she shows love. Now, as an adult, I realize just how ahead of her time she has always been.
Just by being herself!
I love you!
