Hello!

A few years ago, I remember thinking how expensive Mothers Day was – Grandmothers and Mothers to buy for.
Now I am down to only needing to buy one gift.
First to go was my Mother in Law. We started off badly, but ended really well, once we sorted out a few issues.
She was quite an incredible woman – involved in so many charities we were worried we would not fit in everyone at the funeral.
Next was my paternal Grandmother. Only after she had passed did we find out how her life had been controlled by her husband from the day he retired onwards.
My maternal Grandmother was unexpected, as we all thought Grandpa would go first. To this day we don’t know what she did in the war, as it is still secret.
Grandpa lasted a few years after her.
Now there is just my Mum to buy for, and although money is tight, I would rather still be buying for 4.

  • Your story gave me goosebumps…..Sometimes we don’t see how important something is until we no longer have it. We all must cherish our loved ones warts and all as none of us know how long any of us have! Nice story.

  • Lovely, I fortunately had all my grandparents up until I was over 30, and now at 47 still have a Grandmother and Grandfather, Mum and Dad have been married nearly 50 years and Grandma and Grandpa have been married over 70 years, I never knew my husbands parents, but I am also fortunate in that I still remember having 2 great grandmothers for many years into my teenage years. It is lovely when family is so extended, it is not something that is seen a lot these days.

  • It is very sad when you lose any loved ones. When I lost my grandmother I felt like I had lost the only connection I had left to my dad (he passed when I was eight years old) there was no one to tell me stories of his youth and she missed out on seeing her two grandsons who our first child has my fathers middle name she would have loved that.
