It is only right and fitting that one day of the year is set aside to honor our grandparents. It is time to celebrate those special people who are always there with a hug, a kiss, a cookie, something special, or take us somewhere.

National Grandparent's Day originated in 1978. Then President Jimmy Carter declared it to be the first Sunday after Labor Day.

If you can, enjoy the day with them. That is the greatest gift they can receive from you. If you can;'t see them, call them. When you call, make sure you have the time for a long conversation. Remember, grandparents will always ask about you first and listen intently to everything you have to say. They are never rushed or in a hurry. They are there just for you.

 

Will you celebrate this holiday?

 I wish I still had my grandparents.  Those are some of my fondest memories as a kid.  I hope my 2 grandkids will remember me the same way.

This is a rather difficult holiday for me.  I have one living grandparent, but we aren't very close.  He is very stubborn, not to mention sexist, and it's hard to carry on a conversation with him without being very frustrated.  Also, I can't help but think of my maternal grandma on a day like today.  She was my best friend, and she died so miserably.  She had myelodysplastic syndrome, which developed into acute myelogenous leukemia.  She spent much of her last 2 years or so going through chemo.  I just can't seem to think about her without thinking of her suffering in those last years.
