Some of our inspiration has come from both Liz’s Grandmothers, Vida and Alice.
Grandma Vi has been a wonderful example of enjoying a happy, meaningful life, for 95 years now!… overcoming the tough times with an inner “grit” and finding pleasure in others, especially family. Grandma has offered a lot of wisdom over the years and we thank her for that! At 95, she continues to learn and keep her mind fit. Showing others the truth that we can create our own happiness and the choice is ours– embrace life and march on.
Although Grandma Alice has been gone for over ten years now, many of her words and funny sayings still come to mind easily. She is remembered for her laugh, her ability to laugh at herself, and her love of chocolate! Her laugh rang out over her pain from a body plagued with rheumatoid arthritis. She, too, found joy in being around others and daily made the choice to be happy despite circumstances.
In this fast paced world, taking time to reflect on these two individuals often brings a sense of peace and a smile. These two ladies have definitely inspired Healthy Smiles Shine, LLC to be an organization that serves others, honors integrity, and has fun!
