Grandparents Day!

Grandparents are a true blessing! I look forward to the day when I become a grandparent! I'm not in any hurry but I do think it will be wonderful!

My grandparents have been very influential in my life and have touched so many other lives! My grandfather was a business man and leader in his church. He was very giving and loved helping others. My grandmother is a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She always put her family first and has touched so many hearts throughout the years! They lived a modest lifestyle while giving to anyone who had needs. My grandmother taught me the joys of volunteering at a young age when we would go to low income apartments to deliver devotions to the residents. I always loved doing that!

Today I would like to celebrate grandparents as well as my grandmother's return home from the nursing home. She had a severe stroke a few months ago. She was at home taking care of my grandfather who has suffered from Alzheimer's for over 10 years. Every family member has been helping out with my grandfather and anticipating my grandmother's return home where she wants to be. She wants to be with her husband. Although she will no longer be able to take care of her husband, they will be together and I know that's where she wants to be.

I am so blessed to have them as my grandparents and as role models! Thank God for grandparents!

Don't forget to celebrate your grandparents and your children's grandparents today!
