i have recently been taking small trips with my sister every week to go visit our grandparents. i will admit that i have been terrible about visiting them up until this year. but i now realize that family, especially the ones who started my family, are important. my grandparents have done so much to make me who i am today. my grammy was the one to teach me how to sew, draw, paint and think creatively. my poppy taught me how to garden and pan for gold. they are so constant about telling me how special i am and how i am worth so much. i couldn't imagine my life without them. i couldn't imagine who i would be without them. i am so proud to call them my grandparents and i know they are proud to call me their granddaughter. i hope and pray that they will be able to see my children someday and that my children would have such a bond with them as i do.
