There was a card on the box and it read - "inside you will find the secrets to your life."
Inside the box was the jar of cream she used to use as a child. The special salt shaker that seasoned her dinners long ago. And several bottles of water - that were still sealed. As she picked up each item there was a note attached to it.
1. The cream said, "You can find me in any drugstore - but I will be empty until you fill me with love. If you place a layer of love between you and the outer world your skin won't get hard."
2. The salt shaker said, "You can get me at any food store - but I will be empty until you fill me with compassion. With compassion deep inside of you, you will never feel indifference to the world."
3. The water said, "You can find me in any store - but I will be empty until you fill me with awareness and respect. With this cleansing your body - your soul will never be absent or disrespectful to yourself or anyone else."
There was a fourth note which said, "Teach those you know to believe, to trust, to love, to have compassion, awareness and respect. I will be with you forever. I love you, Grandma."
I’ve never looked at life the same. Come join in my Grandma’s blessings… YOU deserve it!
