Everyone who visits my blog knows that I talk about my children quite a bit. You don’t often hear me mention other family members – that’s mostly because I don’t have permission. In fact, my mother has specifically requested that she not be included in any posts or anything on the Internet. No pictures, no references, no nothing.
Although I may not agree, I do respect her privacy and choices. As a matter of fact, when I began blogging I asked my oldest daughter Amber if it was okay to talk about her. It was after I had already started doing it (LOL), but had she been opposed I wouldn’t have continued. I also asked her permission for using her as the subject of my blog posts in Parent’s Perspective on Campus Talk Blog.
Today, I just couldn’t resist telling you about my sweet grandmother. My mom’s mother is the only grandparent I have left and I had a chance to talk to her today. She is 92 years old and she is the sweetest person I know. She’s vibrant, beautiful and touches my heart each times she thinks of me and the children by either asking my mother about us or sending us presents in the mail. I called her because when I checked the mail today I found three boxes she had sent; inside are Christmas presents for the children.
That she took the time to have my aunt send the children some gifts is so thoughtful and sweet. We should be sending her gifts! Although I can’t include any pictures, won’t tell you her name or give you a lot of details it’s an honor to share about my grandmother… the sweetest mom mom I know!
