Wordless Wednesday

shh ww

Along with today's edition of WW, I had to make a little comment. We recently went to South Carolina to watch my youngest cousin graduate high school. Scary because it only made me realize that will be me dealing with a graduate next year. But along with that, I had a new appriciation for my grandparents. They are both in their 80's and when I was younger, I had them around me all the time. Grandma watched me after school, I would help Grandpa in the garden, he'd yell at me when I'd pick the cherry tomatoes and eat them right then and there and I'd help shuck the corn sitting on the back porch.

J doesn't have that with his great-grandparents. Because of schedules, life, school and everything else that gets thrown at you, he has only met then 4 times in his short time here. I treasure these moments that my grandparents have with him.

That's life isn't it? They look so happy in the pictures. I managed to spend a little time with my great grandma when she was alive and I'll never forget it. I don't think your son will too.

Happy WW!
This week mine's about my very own superhero!

I grew up living next door to my grandparents so they were like another set of parents. It's sad that people live so far away and kids don't get to know their grandparents as well as they'd like. Cherish them while they are still alive and with you. Mine have all passed and I miss them. Happy WW

My grandparents are still around and still living on their own. God bless 'em.

So touching but it's life we were born to have a family of our own, and sometimes it could mean distance from where our origin..and to our children to be stranger to our dear parents...

It's great he gets to meet them at all!

My son wil never meet any of his great-grandparents.
