Birthday Remembrance of a Proverbs 31 Woman

Today marks 101 years since Grandma Jones (Mildred) was born. She has been in heaven almost four years. I still think of her every day. Her love, kindness, gentleness, and wisdom live on in the memories of those who knew her and the stories they tell. She wasn’t a “talker.” In fact, she was one of the few people in her immediate family who wasn’t. She was a listener. However, when she said something you were well-advised to listen! So, today I want to create a blog of some of the sayings I remember. I hope they bless you as they do me.

“The good old days weren’t so good.”

“If it won’t matter in fifty years, it isn’t worth worrying about now.”


“Crying doesn’t help, it just gives you a headache.”

George & Mildred 70s 0001

“The main thing with your weight, Miriam, is to keep the first number a one.”

Fair 040

“It’s good to see them come, and it’s good to see them go.” (On family coming to visit.)

Wedding Pictures 160“There  wasn’t much divorce when we were young. If you didn’t like him one day you just waited a few days until you did.”


While watching Antiques Roadshow: “They aren’t worth that much. That’s just what they are willing to pay. Those are just old things from when I was a kid.”

DCF 1.0

“Come see me when I’m alive, don’t worry about bringing flowers when I’m dead.”
