Grandparents day is being celebrated on September 12th of 2010. What a special holiday. Celebrate this very special day by appreciating your grandparents. It’s their day. Yay!
Grandparent’s day falls on a Sunday this year. I want you to take the time to thank your grandparents for all that they have done for you, over the years. You know that grandparents always listen, spoil you rotten and always take the time to listen to you. They are in a special category all their own and rightfully so! All the many years of wisdom and learning are inside of them and just waiting to be passed on to you. All you have to do is ask. No, it won’t kill you. You’d be surprised what they know. Listen.
Celebrate grandparent’s day by making their day special. Of course, a cake or gift is always appreciated, but not necessary. Your time, your love and your visit is all that is required on this great holiday! Let your precious grandparents know that you love them. It is that easy! Dig up some favorite photos of them and they will enjoy, believe me. Tell them what moments they spent with you mattered most. This gift via memory is precious and most appreciated while they are still living, believe me. Let them know just how they made a difference in your life. Little things count.
My grandmother passed on her love of the Lord, Jesus, her poetry, she wrote her own and many more fabulous gifts to me. I did not value these gifts until I was older and I wanted to write this article about grandparent’s day to say that it is never too late, as long as your grandparent’s are alive. Share with your grandparent’s what you love about them, your questions and your love. They will always remember and cherish it, I promise you. They will share a worthy wealth of information that just doesn’t have a price tag. Their life is indeed yours, even before you were born. Imagine that! It’s true.
Take advantage of grandparent’s day. Let them know of your love, your interest and their importance. Family heritage is not only worldly possessions, it is the true family stories behind the belongings. Don’t miss this! The knowledge is indeed priceless. From home made soup recipes to funny family stories, my maternal grandmother was very rich in memories and blessings. She shared many of these with me. Time spent with your grandparents is a blessing. I will always remember my grandmother laughing and saying “Aw, Shaw!” Her version of oh, shucks, and I loved hearing it. My paternal grandmother gave me wisdom, peace and many loving memories. I will always carry them with me.
No one in this world we live in is perfect, but grandparents do have a lot of information to give, God willing. If it is possible, cherish them and always take heed of their advice. Just knowing that they passed along their wit to another generation is quite an accomplishment, believe me. They lived just for this, make no mistake. If they were there for you, be there for them, while they are alive. That is the best that you can do. That is all that matters.
September twelfth, 2010 is grandparents day. Celebrate! Enjoy it with them, if at all possible. They are worth it. The history that your grandparents leave behind is yours. Bless them. Their love is yours. Always.
