This Mother's Day weekend I thought I would pass on some motherly advice. When my grandmother was in the hospital, my mother urged me to bring her a box of chocolates. This seemed a strange request because my grandmother doesn't have much of a sweet tooth. I learned that Grandma likes to keep the chocolates on hand to offer to doctors, nurses, and other staff who come to her room. Then she's like their very own grandmother and they go out of their way to check on her, sometimes peeking in even after their shifts have ended.
