Grandparents Day 2013: 8 Sweet Quotes to Celebrate the Beauty They Bring to Our Lives (PHOTOS)

grandparentsHave you called the grandparents in your life recently? If not, it's a perfect time to do so as today is National Grandparents Day 2013. It's one of those holidays that's often forgotten, but our grandparents never should be. If we're lucky enough to have them in our lives, they can provide so much wisdom, perspective, and love.

While my grandparents are all deceased, I have so many wonderful memories of them, and I love watching my children make their own memories with my parents and my husband's parents. There's truly nothing like the bond they share. They're the only people to whom I feel 100 percent comfortable bragging about my children's accomplishments, and revealing my fears for them. They want nothing but the best for them and delight in everything they do. In honor of this special day, here are eight quotes about grandparents to celebrate and share with them.

Not all grandparents are continually try to poison my children against me and try to buy their loyalty with gifts and trips we like to call "why your mother is a piece of shit dinner theatre". Reporting should be viewed as a mission to represent both sides. Whether good bad or just plain evil. It.should be responsible reporting.

I miss my grandparents.  Especially my mom's parents, who both passed away when I was still young (my grandma died when I was 9, my grandpa when I was 18.)  I named my two first children after them.  It makes me so sad that they didn't live to see me get married, or to see my children, or (in my grandma's case) to be there as I grew up.
