Author Cecilia Kaelin now, as an adult, finds herself with a better understanding of her grandparents' words. ?I didn?t know it then, but my grandparents were teaching me about life. They taught me courage, patience, self-control, sharing, caring, that there were rewards for my hard work and labor, and that a job well done has its own rewards. My grandparents left me many years ago, but many times in my life, I find them as close to me as I am to the written word. If you listen closely, I believe you can hear those messages and apply them in your own life.? The author has added two extra stories at the end of the book for your enjoyment.
