I admit I forgot all about it.
Grandparents Day was yesterday, September 8th, 2013. I planned this post in advance (actually, a few weeks prior back in August) and when yesterday rolled around, my mind completely shut down.
As I write this, I am shaking my head. I had even written this in the calendar above my computer monitor and scribbled a reminder in a tiny notebook where I keep all my blog ideas. So much for planning in advance.
So happy belated grandparents day!
Is it too late to say thank you to our grandparents who gave birth to our parents who in turn gave birth to us? I hope not. Otherwise, you and me wouldn’t be on this earth living and breathing at this very moment.
Sorry…grandma and grandpa. I’ll make it up to you with a poem. (I’m broke remember?)
For everything you have done for me
All the things I ever wanted came for free
When I ask you’re always there to answer
Thanks for supporting my dreams to become a dancer
What I say never goes unheard
It seems as if you listen to every word
Still, I laugh so hard my sides hurt
I’m still surprised you’re so alert
I hope you know I will always love
How both of you constantly put me above
Thank you for being the best grandparents a girl could ask for
I couldn’t have asked God for more
