10 Things My Grandma Nan Used to Say

1.) There are no ugly people; only ugly hearts.

2.) God hears even the smallest voices.

3.) You can learn more from failure than you can from success.

4.) Everything happens for a reason.

5.) If people were more like dogs, we'd all be more willing to speak our mind.

6.) Prayer can get you through even the toughest of times.

7.) Time, like love, is a tide. Don't let either slip your mind too fast.

8.) I am overweight because I want you to have a soft belly to lean on.

9.) You were born out of the brightest star in the sky.

And my favorite...
10.) I love you.
