How nice that you have those wonderful photos of your grandparents. I'm lucky to have my paternal grandparents, they live with us. My maternal grandparents have been gone for awhile now.


The older I get, the more I treasure family memories, photos and time with treasured people. I wish I had asked all those important family questions when they were with us. When my mom passed away this spring, we all lost the last member of her generation. Of course, I will be our son and his children's grandmother some day!

I love the photos of your grandparents, they were happy looking young couples, probably very in love and just starting out!

It's a good thing you're doing for yourself and your family! Your friend would want you to embrace life and celebrate.



I thought grandparent's day was tomorrow. Oh, I'm so confused. Why is it they make such a big deal about mother's day and father's day, but not gradparents day? All of my grandparents have been gone for at least a few years. There are many times I wishfully thing that they were still here to offer me the support and guidance they used to try to give. As a teenager though who could listen to their grandparents and still be cool? If I had only known then what I know now!


I think about that all the time! My maternal grandfather passed away when my mom was in college and I never got to meet him. I've heard lots of stories about him and what a great sense of humor he had. I often wonder how he would have fit into our family today. Very sweet post.


Thank you Briana. It's good to know I'm not alone with these thoughts!
