something you learned from a grandparent

Patience. I remember making candy with my grandmother one Christmas season. She was measuring out the corn syrup and it looked like it wasn't going to be enough. But she simply stood there holding the upturned bottle over the measuring cup until every...last...drop...had...run....out. It was just enough for the recipe and the candy turned out -- as usual -- perfect. Had she not had the patience to wait, the candy would have been ruined. Sad to say, I don't always practice what she taught me.
