Happy Grandparent's Day!

9/08/2013

It's hard to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries so many other days but for some reason Grandparent's Day stood out to me this year.  We are blessed that Hannah and Savannah have Grandparent's who adore and love them so completely, between David's parents, my mom who is down a lot to see us as well as my dad and step-mom who we actually just saw today!

I'm also reminded today about the Grandparent's that David and I have lost. Last year we both lost our last living Grandparent, David's Granny passed away on November 1st and my Grammie (my mom's mom) passed away on Christmas morning.  Since both leaving us so suddenly it's been very important to us to have the girls with their Grandparent's as much as possible.

I know it's not "cool" to hang out with your Grandparent's but I want the girls to know that they are so loved that it shouldn't matter if it's cool or not and to really take the time to appreciate these amazing people who give so much of themselves for them.

So if you are lucky enough to still have a Grandparent with you today, take some time, give them a call or stop in to see them...they should know not just today but everyday how much you love and appreciate all that they have done for you.

    1. I agree...I hope my kids don't take their grandparents for granted like sometimes I did...I really miss them now that they aren't here with me

  3. Grandparents are special! I was closer to my grandmas growing up than I was to my own mom. I'm still pretty close to one of them actually. We do live pretty far from everyone now but I'm sure that won't stop my mom from being known to my little guy. Thanks for linking up to Mommy Monday again this week! XoXo
