I was shocked to realize I haven't posted anything for almost a year. But when I think about all that has happened it makes perfect sense.
Our daughter got engaged in July of last year and married in January. She also moved to another state faraway where we had to make two separate trips by car to help move her things. I am hoping they will return to Florida before starting their family, but I've learned to hold my hopes in this department loosely.
My grandkids are getting older and range from age 2 to almost 11. My Nana's Newsletter is not as regular these days either, I'm sad to say, but I know that the next one is going out soon.
Today I want to share with you something our daughter did at her wedding reception. She has two grandfathers and wanted to honor them on her special day. She decided to surprise them with a special dance where she began with one and ended with the other. Her paternal grandfather has always lived faraway, so connecting on a regular basis has been difficult. Especially since she became an adult. This moment brought tears to my eyes as I realized being faraway doesn't mean far at heart. She holds them both close and cherishes any time she has with them. Sadly two of her grandmothers are no longer here, but she honored them with photos on a table declaring her eternal love for them.
Do you remember your grandparents? How can your relationship with them help you cultivate your relationship with your grandchildren?
