this week, we lost the most amazing woman ever to walk the face of this earth. my nana, annie clemmons laflamme, was the strongest, most loving, caring, and beautiful woman i have ever had the pleasure of knowing. it’s been an incredibly hard week for us all, but we know she’s gone home to the lord and is doing what she does best–watching over us and loving us.
my sister, cousins, and i put together a list of things we learned from our nana over the years. we tend to cope with humor, so we laughed quite a bit while compiling our list. though it’s been rough so far, it’s also been awesome to see all the people, family and friends alike, who have been touched by nana’s love and care. it’s also been so much fun to relive stories about her. so without further ado, here are a few “nana-isms” we put together.
* You’ll never get a husband if you don’t learn how to eat spaghetti without slurping.
* You can never have too much jewelry.
* You have to earn the right to wear the white.
* Stop touching your face, or you’ll get wrinkles!
* Get your hair out of your face.
* If you must rub your eyes, use your ring finger.
* Always make sure everybody around you is cared for.
* Age is just a number. You’re never too old to dye your hair pink or wear a coconut bra.
* Always have your lipstick at the ready.
* Beauty comes from within, but you’d better be using your moisturizer.
* If you really mean something, underline it. Twice.
*You can always spare $10 for a birthday card.
* Above all, Nana taught us strength, grace, and love.
we love you more than we could ever say, nana, and we miss you so much.
