Never Complain

Never complain.

Let's try it.

My grandmother, Madeleine Francoise Amirault (d'Eon), passed away this weekend.

At 4:15am, Saturday, October 10, 2020 in The Meadows Home for Special Care in Yarmouth.

She was 102 years old. We called her, "Nana."

I am still processing it. Made a most short post on Facebook about it.

Out of the many things I remember about her, the one that stands out is that she never complained.

She never complained.

How amazing is that?

In a world filled with complaining and entitlement, it is a rare thing.

I have challenged myself to not complain, the idea to do it for 21 days or a month, but I have never succeeded!

I am putting this here to respect my grandmother as well as inspire myself by her.

That is all.
