My grandma is amazing

Things my beloved Maw Maw Sadie has said this week –

“You know, a girl could go out without clothes on as long as she had good shoes and a nice handbag.”

“If God wants me to have a third husband, He’s going to have to really just put him in my lap. I don’t want to bury a third one, mind you, but I’d really like a good Christian man for companionship. Someone who would want to go to church and serve the church and serve the Lord and pray. I would like a man like that.” My reply? “I’m 24, you’re 70, and I think we pretty much have the same problem.”

“Every night I pray that God’s will be done. There’s no sense in askin’ for anything else.”

And her all time classic –

“As long as you have your Bible and your rolling pin, it’s going to be okay.”

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
