The stereotypical grandma is a kindly old lady who spends her days knitting, watching old TV shows, and pushing food on any grandchildren who wander into her vicinity. Of course, most real-life grandmothers don’t fit that stereotype. These days, with so many women living healthier and working longer, it’s harder to tell who even is a grandma.
One of the few generalizations we can safely make about grandmothers is that, as a rule, they’re pretty amazing. Because of the positive impact they have on people’s lives, they deserve all the recognition and praise we can muster. And while any time is a great time to let your grandma know how much she means to you, Mother’s Day seems particularly opportune.
That’s where the following list comes in. These clever Mother’s Day wishes for a grandma come in a variety of styles, so you can find the right message for your decidedly non-stereotypical granny.
