  • 🇮🇹Sono stati mesi durissimi per me lontano da loro, la vita li ha messi a dura prova e ho avuto tantissima paura di non poterli rivedere, I miei nonni, l'emozione di riabbracciarli e' stata indescrivibile. Nonno Alberto, due ictus lo hanno reso disabile, cieco e quasi senza memoria, ha riconosciuto la mia voce e abbiamo chiacchierato tanto. Stringeva la mano di mia nonna, che vive per lui. Una vita passata insieme, un esempio di amore infinito e una storia, la loro, che ho raccontato nel mio libro. I miei nonni, sono I miei eroi, mi hanno cresciuto e mi hanno insegnato tanto. Gli ho detto 'Nonno, ma lo sai che ho scritto un libro e ci sono anche foto tue?' E lui mi ha risposto 'Ma davvero???' Hahahah 'Si, nonno...e anche la storia di come tu e nonna vi siete conosciuti a Fontana di Trevi!' Per me questi sono momenti preziosissimi, attimi che terro' custoditi nel mio cuore per sempre. ❤ 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
🇺🇸After so many months of waiting, far away, I had the chance to see, hugs and spent time with my grandparents in Rome. Lately they lived very bad moments and faced major health problems, I was very worried. I can't explain the joy I felt yesterday to see them again and even show them my book where I featured their story for me an example of real love and strength. ❤

  • 2 yr old me w my Grampy. I loved our talks,(even as two pals in Lounge chairs at 2 yrs old)⁣
⁣
See, Grampy was the first person to make me feel SPECIAL. Feel that I was gonna be somebody, that my life would be great, that I was great. He saw me, he loved me and believed in me .⁣
⁣
He was a very quiet man, a simple man, and a truly Good man. It wasn't necessarily what he said to me, but how I FELT being w him. I just loved being w him. ⁣
⁣
He never missed a ballgame of mine, NEVER ONE... I would look up in the stands at every game and see my Grampy, just his presence made me feel good and gave me confidence… I was the most important thing in the world to him, and he showed me… Just by being there… He would leave work early or miss work altogether but would never miss one of my games. Till the day he died, he never missed a game⁣
⁣
Think back to when you were a child. Did you have someone like Grampy? The person who made you feel special 🙏🏽 They saw something in you, loved you and believed in you so much? Who was it? Was it a family member? A coach? A teacher? 🙏🏽 Can you picture their precious face right now? Can you?⁣
⁣
Who were they? Maybe it’s someone currently in your life? Please TAG them or LEAVE THEIR NAME IN THE COMMENTS. Honor them this way. I promise you, just typing their name will feel incredible and will take you right back to that feeling. You may even tear up a little bit, just remembering them and how special they were/are to you and how special they made/make you feel⁣
⁣
The other way you can honor them is by PROVING THEM RIGHT! By making your life something to be proud of, honoring them with your effort, your contribution, and your goodness⁣
⁣
TAG them or if they are in HEAVEN now, type their name in the COMMENTS, it will feel incredible, Seeing their written name will remind you And flood you with their love.⁣
⁣
If you were not blessed to have somebody like that in your life, THEN YOU NEED TO BE THAT PERSON FOR SOMEONE ELSE,⁣
This is your calling. ⁣
⁣
I hope I’m making you proud GRAMPY #maxout

  • Hallo Mami... grummel ..... Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Urlaub. Dann kuschle ich eben mit meiner Grossmutter. Du, lieber Großvater, Wuff  ich schnapp Dir gleich die Kamera weg.... ich will jetzt auch relaxen..... passiert das auch, wenn eure Mamis in den Urlaub fahren, dass ihr auch Urlaub woanders macht? Hello mum ... grumble ..... I wish you a nice holiday. Then I just cuddle with my grandmother. You grandfather I'll snap the camera away .... I want to relax now ..... does that happen, too, when your mommies go on vacation, that you're going on vacation somewhere else? #doxielover #doxieworld #sausagedogsonly #pets #dog #grandparents #großeltern

  • I said goodbye to my Grandpa Beckstead last week. He passed away last Wednesday; he would have turned 90 four days later, on Sunday ❤️. My grandma, his wife of over 70 years, died 15 months ago, and now I have no grandparents left. But I feel so tremendously lucky to have had them for so much of my life. I grew up about a mile down the road from their house and until I moved away from home, it was a rare week that I didn’t see or spend some time with them. Grandma would have my sisters and I down to work on scrapbook pages or tie a quilt; Grandpa would let me tag along while he drove tractor around his farm. Their doors were always open and their hearts were enormous. My grandpa made friends EVERYWHERE—he was larger than life, boisterous, funny. I learned so much from him. A couple of lessons I’ve been thinking about:
.
1: Radical generosity leads to good things. || There are so many stories of my grandparents being unusually trusting and generous. Once a man’s car broke down on the highway near their home and he came to the door and asked if he could use their phone. They found out he had an important meeting 3 hours away and was going to miss it, so they just gave him their car keys, told him to get to his meeting and bring the car back when he was done. SO many dozens of stories like this, and they are so beautiful to me. My grandparents demonstrated with radical action that people were much more important to them than things. 
2: Our efforts to build our families reverberate through generations. || When he passed away, my grandpa had 36 grandkids, 75 great-grandkids, and one great-great-grandson. Our family is bigger than most, but we are very close and get together several times a year. This is a direct result of my grandparents working hard to make everyone feel loved and accepted, to keep open minds when grandchildren took untraditional paths, to keep track of what we were each doing, to plan events and reunions, and to connect with us one-on-one whenever they could. Now, their kids do the same with us grandchildren and with our children, and that legacy of keeping a close connection with family is carrying on. And I love it. (Continued in first comment)

  • Gratitude can be found in everyday acts of generosity but I had no idea how grateful I would be for this new kitchen faucet.  Thanks to my parents I don't have to worry about leaks or a faucet that will no longer turn to the other side of the sink.
❤️
This is just one of a million things that my parents do to support me.  They help with childcare so I can focus on self-care.  My dad helps around the house and garden and offers so much emotional support, it's been a wonderful change in our relationship. My mom helps mend things since I cannot sew, helps with dentist appointments for the kids, makes the yummiest treats for my family and is always ready with financial advice as a former CPA/CFP.  They pass down like-new everything:  appliances, cars and other tremendously helpful items.  Without them I would not be where I am today and I would surely have had a full breakdown without their support during very difficult times.  We aren't a lovey dovey family but I certainly know they love me and I hope they know how MUCH I love and appreciate them.  In case they don't, it's social media official.

  • "...Raising four kids close in age, I often despaired: Will I ever finish picking Lego off the floor? Shooting stain removal spray on those tough grass stains that are the subject of detergent commercials? Would I ever stop being a referee in the arguments among three rambunctious sons? When could I sit at my desk in peace and write, other than in the quiet of the night? Often I’d think: One day, I won’t have to carve my work around being a mom. One day, they’ll grow up, move out, and I can “get back to work” in the way I wanted. 
I never regretted putting motherhood first. Not every woman has that opportunity, and it was a privilege I tried not to take for granted. Now that our kids are grown, I am doubly sure my focus has paid off. But the funny thing is, now that my time is really my own, I want to spend as much time as I can with my grandchildren. My car is once again fitted with a car seat. I am once again well-stocked with strollers, kiddie toys and fat crayons. Being a Nana is very different than being a parent, and I revel in its joy and opportunities..." A beautiful look at being a grandmother by Judy Gruen.

  • Picture of Big Daddy, Grandma, Panther Cub and Little Daddy
%
Hadnt seen her since her 90th birthday so we visited Grandma Panther this weekend. Also stopped by my grandpa on my mom's side. Good little reminder of where we come from and what we want to instill in the Panther cub.
%
I was lucky enough to know all four of my grandparents growing up. Even through my first few years of college. They were all different in their personalities. Orlo being the goofy clown, Urban being the quieter, more subtle but still comedic one, Bertha being the very straight forward one who will make you laugh with her bluntness and Helen being the sweet, gullible one.
%
The things they all had/have in common are their generosity and work ethic. Those are the two traits that I admire most about anyone and they had both by the truck load. They never made excuses about their unfortunate situations and were always very grateful for the blessings they had. They fixed things that broke and they used things until they wore out. They lived simply and never worried about possessions, only making sure their loved ones were taken care of. %
I realize the irony of posting about these things on social media, but they had very little concern for impressing people. If they had enough, they were happy. When you worry about obtaining things and money, you will always be disappointed because there will always be more. When you take a look at what you have and appreciate it, you will be much happier. It was a reminder also to practice thankfulness every day, even for something small.
%
Thanks to them for setting this example for myself, my brother, my parents, aunts, uncles, my cousins and the constantly growing number of great grandbabies. Not sure what the count is up to now, lost track after 4.
