And I was lucky to have grandparents (all of them) who were so proud of me. Of us. All of us. I started my first 'big girl' job when Grandpa K. was in the nursing home and he was so excited for me - he had me write my job title on a piece of paper that he kept in his drawer so that he could tell everyone what a great job I had gotten... and he did. And while Grandpa D. was gone by that point, Grandma K. and Grandma D. always made a point to ask how my job and my life were going.
I know several of you are thinking about Grandma D. today, too. And I'm thinking about you. We were blessed to have them in our lives and I am blessed to have you. Feel free to share a memory here, if you'd like, of any of them. :)
I posted these videos when I first started this blog in January, but thought it an appropriate time for a repost.
