Grandparents Day
I heart my Grandparents. I was fortunate enough to have a long and deep relationship with all 4 of them. In fact, my own children were fortunate to have a relationship with them as well.  It really has meant so much to our families that we have been able to have these relationships.

Whether the Grandparents in your life are blood or "adopted" make sure you take some time today to thank them for how they have invested into your life and been a part of it.
This is not a holiday invented to sell cards and flowers, it's a day for young and old to honor each other, and an opportunity for civic engagement for all generations.
