My Gs


Their love for each other ~ their passion ~ their love for me ~ their hope ~ their love of life ~ their values ~ their love for the simple things ~ their support ~ their love for their family ~ their strength ~ their love of the outdoors ~ their voice ~ their love of quiet times ~ their determination ~ their love of beauty and their inspiring success

~ This is what drives me every day ~

 

We are close. There is not a time in my life that I don't have a special memory of me and my Grandma and Grandpa. Whether it's the special letters they used to send us as kids with dot to dot animal drawings or rounding up the cows on the farm or hanging out at 'Sportscene' or making and painting concrete plates while listening to John Williamson or reading books on the couch and watching the cricket or preparing and eating spaghetti bolognese with hollow pasta. Every single memory I hold dear to my heart. Through every up and every down they have been there. Still to this day we talk every single Sunday night. Even if there isn't much to talk about, I love just hearing their voice. I look forward to it every week. I love being able to share everything that happens in our life with them. No matter what they are going through they always have time for me and are always ALWAYS positive and motivating. I owe a BIG part of who I am to these 2 special people. They have taught me compassion, hope, gratitude and most of all unconditional love. No words could ever describe how much they mean to me and how grateful I am to them. They are the hardest working, most loving people I know and have given me the greatest gift of all...my mum.

I love you Grandma and Grandpa ~ More than you will ever know
Thank You for being you and teaching me to be the best person I can be

What a beautiful post! You are so very blessed. All of my grandparents died but he time I was seven (I never met either grandfather) so I have no idea of that special relationship.
I'm so glad you get to enjoy that with them.

Lovely post!

I had a similar bond with my grandparents, right down to the dot-to-dot drawings. Thanks for the trip down memory lane :)
