Well the party has come and went and was a success! The beer was cold, the food was good, the company was great and my grandparents had a blast.. I have always know how lucky I am to have my family and that family starts with my Grandma and Grandpa.
My family is only happy when there is a lot of us, we are loud and we are laughing. My grandparents have taught us to welcome our neighbours, strangers, co- workers and friends into your home and treat them like family.
This was never more clear then at the party this weekend, where we welcomed our family, my Grandparents friends (even the best man from their wedding who p.s I wanted to hug he was soo stinkin cute), my mom's friends, my friends and all the strangers we met along the way who are now family..
I love my grandma and grandpa more then words and the lessons they have taught me are tucked away in my heart I hope I can be as good a parent,friend and person as they are.
Some grandparents teach their grand kids how to work on a farm, or sew a blanket my grandparents have taught me how to enjoy life, how to find the laughter in the storm of angry and sadness that is the world around us. They have showed that no matter what your family will be there to stand with you when you fail, cheer with you when you succeed and pick you up when you fall. My Grandparents have not only taught me this but the many who have come in and out their always open door.
Thank you and I can't believe how blessed I truly am xoxox
