The emotional legacy of the wisest women

Last update: October 27, 2015

Our grandmothers are the wisest women, even if time has forgotten about them, even if the world now sounds out of tune to their ears and theirs. tired looks.

Their legacy will be passed down from generation to generation in those knowledge that they go into, as does the love bond and the whispered words that pamper us before going to sleep. In the advice, in the smiles that communicate worlds without having to say a word.

The wisest women not only wear a thousand lives for every year they turn, they know more about self-help than self-help books and retain that essence that doesn't know of time or modernity, because it is the wisdom of courage and unconditional love that asks for nothing in return, that enriches and protects.


The legacy of past generations, of our grandmothers, is the testimony of a woman who left her legacy of blood and affection, sometimes contrasted, but always intense and decisive.

Today we talk about the bonding woven during the three generations of grandmothers, mothers and daughters, where the role of the older ones rises to a figure of great importance on an affective and emotional level.

The invisible bond of the wisest women

It is usually said that grandmothers are the most skilled craftswomen of those knowledge that are passed on without the need for words.

We often observe them when they lock themselves up in their precise rituals, in ordering their things, in taking care of our clothes, in preparing the food that triumphs over those delicious dishes, braiding their white hair every morning, and then collect them in a bun that they fix with careful precision.

In each of these movements, not only the years of practice are hidden, but also the silence of the emotions of a whole life that are preserved in every gesture, every little movement.

Because in reality we will never know all the secrets they lived in their youth, the crying pains or the disappointments swallowed like cold river rocks. Because now it doesn't matter, because time has passed and, for sure, it has healed the wounds.

They passed on to their daughters their knowledge about life, which speaks of courage and truth and which spread over time. In love we must be cautious, the heart must not be given to those who do not deserve it, they are there pains that are best kept to oneself and happiness must be proudly displayed, because it is personal triumphs that make a woman beautiful.

The education of the wisest women

Experts say raising children is not the same as raising grandchildren. In this case, the grandmothers adopt a less severe position, but at the same time significant.

There is no longer the pressure of guiding the steps of children with daily effort, with that eagerness to overcome themselves that leads them to always put others before themselves.

Grandchildren are the gift of their own blood e a renewed tribute to their lives. People to love unconditionally by letting their children adopt a guiding role, to set limits, to risk making mistakes every day in raising their children.

The grandmothers, on the other hand, represent the figure of a tree that offers its roots to grandchildren and the balance of an affection that is never shaken by storms and that makes no difference between vacation days and school days.

There is always something sweet in the oven, there is always a chair on which to sit in front of a window from which to look at the sky, the clouds and listen to a thousand stories of the past that we will always remember with love.

The transgenerational legacy of grandmothers, of those courageous and sincere-looking women, he often talks about Resilience. In fact, it doesn't matter how old you are to understand the meaning of those words spoken when you look at the face of those women, while they frame our face with their hands.

We immediately understand that they have overcome things that we can only imagine, who have faced battlefields where their sex was still not respected, who raised their voices when they were told to shut up and who, at times, gave up many of their dreams.

Those dreams that one day transmitted to us, to their grandchildren, hopes that nourish their hearts, because no love is more sincere than that of grandmothers. That of wiser women ...
