For all the special things they do, grandparent's deserve a day just for them.   This Sunday, September 8th is Grandparents Day.


When I think of grandparents, I think of hugs, kisses, extra treats, treasured gifts and moments spent with people who love you unconditionally no matter what and always think you're wonderful.

Grandparent's Day has been celebrated officially since 1978, when then President Jimmy Carter signed a federal proclamation making the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparent's Day.

I'd like to honor my late Nana on this Grandparent's Day.  She had the most beautiful smile and was always gracious, loving, supportive, giving and every other wonderful adjective you could think of.  She also was an outstanding cook and baker.  Her desserts were to die for.  Nana, thanks for the happy memories and for giving birth to such a wonderful daughter, who I'm honored to call my Mom.

To all the grandparents who touch so many lives, you're a treasure and I hope you get all the love and attention you so richly deserve today.
