So scouring around the internet I find out that July 23rd is “Gorgeous Grandma Day” Who knew??!!
So I want you this month to tell a story about your grandmother. Was she an amazing role model, a stern task master, a gentle guide as you grew up? Did she look after you whilst your mother and father worked? Was she taken from your life too soon, or is she still with us? Did you have holidays visiting her, do you have a special memory of that time? I’d love to read a story about her, or about a little snippet of her life, or a day you wish to remember which involved her.
Maybe you want to tell the story about when YOU became a grandmother. What did it feel like, the emotions when you held your grandchild for the first time? Have you got umpteen grandchildren? Do you have a special name that you like to be called rather than grandma, granny or nanna? I have a friend who gets called Gra Gra for instance. What’s your special name that your grandchild calls you? Or in turn what did you call your grandmother?
Do you look like your grandmother? Is there a trait you have similar to her? Were you named after her? So many stories to tell. We want to hear it all.
I have made a page about my memories of my grandmother who passed away in 2007, little snippets that stick in my mind that are uniquely part of her.
