Happy Grandparents Day

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting. ~Author Unknown

Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete. ~Marcy DeMaree

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudolph Giuliani


Because DD and I can't celebrate with our fave grandparent today, we want to wish my mom/DD's gramdma a happy Grandparent's Day.

* She saw DD born and actually held her before I did.

* As a toddler, DD called her "Guh" for the longest time.

* She taught DD to cross stitch and was the first to help her plant seeds.

* DD's first sleepover was at Grandma's house -- even though it was only over our garage.

* She shared nearly every moment of the first eight years of DD's life and it made an impact.

And we miss having her nearby.

Happy Grandparent's Day, mom!

Beautiful photo!

We have no grandparents in the family. Very sad. My parents passed away some time ago and my husband's did, too. We were just talking how there won't be any grandparents at our son's wedding. We miss them very much.
