At the fun age of 29 plus a few, I find myself having no living grandparents. I have a wonderful grandmother in law, but mine are gone.
I never realized before how much I relied on grandparents knowledge for things over the years. Little daily things that they bestowed advice for that saved more time with the kids instead. Ways to cook more efficiently that somehow tasted better then any recipe I followed!
The hands on my shoulder when I faced something difficult. The smile that gave me the courage to keep pushing through the hard times. The never ending pictures and stories to fall back on when the days were slower.
Why don’t we notice how much we rely on this, how much we LOVE this, until it’s too late??
Hug your parents and grandparents. Take those pictures. Spend that time. It goes too fast.
Missing them always. 😢💔
