30 Days of Thankful - Day 10

I am thankful for my Grandmas and Grandpas.

I have been blessed with wonderful grandparents.  

My grandma Ada passed away 6 years ago today, my great grandma Potts passed away almost 4 years ago.

I have my grandpa Harvey who is quite exceptional for a man in his mid-eighties.  He always seems to know the right things to say in difficult situations, he has all (and I mean all) the latest technological gadgets, he bounces back from surgeries like nobody you've ever seen, and he loves all 5 of his children and their spouses, all 17 of his grandchildren, and all 10 of his great grandchildren (although he may have a hard time keeping all those kiddos straight).  Our family is so blessed to have him as our example of Godly man.  

I also have my grandma Rae and Grandpa Pete.  They have been such a blessing to our family  My grandma has been available to watch the girls on a weekly basis.  My grandpa will stop anything to play with my girls when we stop by for a visit.  They help us out with all kinds of things - from helping me with my sewing machine to putting a bed together.  My girls love them so much.  It is so adorable to watch them run to be swooped up into a hug when they see them.

I love that my girls have so many godly examples to watch as they grow up.

  1. This almost made me cry. I really miss my grandparents (with Grandpa McRae being the only one left and I barely ever see him). I'm so glad that you have wonderful grandparents around as a regular part of your life and that they get to be a part of the girls lives too. You are VERY blessed!!!
