I’m very thankful that I was raised a Catholic by a family who never emphasised dogma, ritual and sin but instead, truth, forgiveness and above all, love. because of that, I believe that the Easter season is supposed to be about the triumph of love and courage over hate and fear. I’m not religious but I respectfully wish everyone hope in that triumph.
it’s rare to come across a bad grandparent. errant parents are all over the place, but grandparents usually savour the chance to do it all over again so they give, give, give and they love, love, love. so unless you have a grandparent who is one of the odd, nasty ones, treat your grandparents with all the love, respect and patience they deserve, no matter how weird and forgetful and sick they get. just remember that all they want is for you to be as proud to have them as grandparents as they are to have you as grandchildren.
happy 84th birthday to my beautiful Grams. I hope I show you the tremendous comfort you have always, always shown me. <3
