Appreciating Grandparents

Appreciating  Grandparents

September 11 is a day that will always be with us as Americans, but on a much lighter note it is also National Grandparents Day. It is a good thing, these days that remind us to celebrate and appreciate something we may take for granted.  Even though I lost my Dad back in 1995, my Mom Nancy is still very much part of our lives, and we are so grateful to have her.   This past winter, my daughter and I made a bean bag toss game out of a scrap piece of plywood.  As we cut out various shapes out of the wood to toss the bags through, a simple heart shaped piece caught her attention.   She painted it, and then we made it into a birthday gift for Grandma, with a picture of the two of them framed in the center of the heart.  Very simple, but matted and framed with the date on the back she was proud to give it to her. My daughter loves her Grandma, and so do I.

"Nobody can do for little children what Grandparents do.  Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children."  Alex Haley
