30 days of thankful...#26

#26 - I am thankful grandparents!
I am blessed to have wonderful grandparents on both sides of my family! 

My paternal grandparents live in the same town as me so I see them pretty often.
They are just awesome people!  They just celebrated their 52nd Wedding Anniversary.
 I am thankful that they have given me unconditional love and support thru my life!
I am thankful that they were shining examples of how working hard and being frugal with your money can pay off in the end.  
So many great principles of how to live your life can be learned from these two.
I am thankful that they have been a great Mammaw and Peepaw to me, my sisters and our babies!

My maternal grandpa passed away about 10 years ago and is greatly missed!
My grandmother has Alzheimer's and is now in a nursing home.
She is in Texas so I don't see her often, but I am thankful for all of the many memories I have of both of them.

You are looking at two of the most wonderful people that ever walked this earth.  
They raised a great family!
We spend many Christmases and Summers with them and made some great memories.
Mama and Papa were a fantastic example of love, devotion and selflessness to the rest of us.

I am thankful for the memories that I have of/with my grandparents!
I hope to have many more!  :o)


  1. You are so lucky to have 3 grandparents still! I only have my one grandma, so I try to treasure what time I have with her :) Heather

  2. How awesome that you have such wonderful memories of them. Blessed, you are! :0)
    I think their wedding picture is one of the most adorable pictures I've ever seen.
