Our grandparents were part of the backbone of our country. They worked hard to bring up their families and prepare them for their future.
Children watched their parents, whether they were aware or not, and learned dedication and the love of family and community from them. Yes, your children learn from you…good or bad.
I’m proud my grandparents were loving Christian people. When they found a neighbor in need, they simply didn’t say how sad or isn’t that too bad. They did something about the situation. My mom often told me stories about them. Grandpa gathered food from the garden and Grandma not only packed it up, she cooked it for them before walking or taking the buggy miles and miles to deliver. And…if clothing was needed, that was acquired too. No one in need went without.
There’s something about the Roberts men and women that makes my heart swell. They would give you the shirt off their backs and the last dollar in their pockets.
So, yes. I’m extremely proud of my grandparents. I could share with you dozens of stories, but that would take many hours. So much love and pride involved with them.
My cousin has written a book and used a photo of my grandparents, with several of their children, on the cover.
I’m so proud of Vicki Collins. Here’s the cover of her book. I’ll post when it’s available, which should be soon.
That’s my mom sitting in Grandma’s lap. The photo of mom looks a lot like one of my sisters!
What memories do you have of your grandparents?
I wish you love, butterflies and music.
