November 13

Today I am Thankful for my grandparents. I was blessed as a child to have 5 grandmothers and 2 grandfathers. Most children are lucky to have 2 grandmothers and 2 grandfathers so I know how blessed I was to have them all in my life.

Each of them touched me in a different way and I have many fond memories of each of them.

We have several pictures of 5 generations on my mothers side from when I was a baby and then again when my boys were babies. 5 generations. Can you believe it? And I was old enough when my great-great grandmother (Nana) died to remember her.

My children were also blessed with many grandparents and sadly we lost 3 of them in the past two years. They all actually died in just over a year. I still miss them so dearly. There are days when my heart just aches for them.

When the older boys were little they had 6 grandmothers and 4 grandfathers. Can you imagine our gatherings at times? lol

Do you have a favorite memory of a grandparent that you would like to share?

My paternal grandmother used to make paperdolls for me when I was little. She would sit and color with me for hours.
