I know I'm incredibly lucky.
Not everyone gets to know their grandparents as well as I've gotten to know mine. . .
some don't ever get to know theirs.
I'm thankful for all the good memories, thankful for all the good times.
I know how special it is that I got to hear stories about the old times first hand, how my grandparents met, how things were done way back when.
I'm thankful I got to know who raised my mother.
I'm thankful I got to learn where my mom gets her stubbornness, her confidence, her strength.
I'm thankful for all the years I had to enjoy time with my Grammy.
