Aaron, my brother, got Bessie’s green thumb. My great-grandmother was an award-winning gardener as well as painter, baker and domino player among other things. She was good at everything she tried. If the Enneagram would have been popular when she was alive, she would no doubt be the poster child for 3’s. She was legit playing dominos and winning until the week she died at the ripe old age of 101. And don’t you DARE try to talk at the table during a game of 42. She would shush you with all the piss and vinegar her little 5’2” frame could muster. But with all the wisdom passed down from Bessie Mae, I think her knowledge of growing things is what those we loved her still go back to most.
