I’ve had the amazing privilege of growing up with some of the best grandparents imaginable. My mother was a single parent and was lucky enough to have these awesome folks help raise me. Unfortunately my grandma is near the end. Smoking 60+ years will do that to you. Luckily, she only lives about an hour away so I have the advantage of seeing her every weekend. Anywho, I drove up this week to take care of her after her most recent hospitalization and I decided to pull out the old photo albums and take a look. What a simpler time it was. The stories she has, the pictures I’ve seen, and the smile on her face when being shown these pictures/memories was rewarding. She’s lived one hell of a life. I love these two people more than words.
