I don’t know about you but I can’t believe we’re in September already! How fast it all goes.
September is a month that will live in infamy because of September 11, 2001, a day when so many Americans lost their lives. No one who saw the horrible images that replayed on television that day will ever forget. But there is more to September.
Many people were born on September 11 and celebrate their birthdays with joy and hope. That includes one of my granddaughters. So, there is brightness, especially since it’s also Grandparents Day this year.
Grandparents Day is always celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day. This year, that’s Sunday, September 11! Even if grandparents are loved and remembered every day, it’s a day to take an extra moment to appreciate all the joy and wisdom they bring to families and share it with the young ones , especially those who live far from their grandparents.
With today’s ease of communication via video, making the most of Grandparents Day is easy . The young and the not-so-young can spend time with their grandparents, laugh with them and show them how much they love them, all the while making new memories.
It’s more than time for the world to make as much fuss about Grandparents Day as it does for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day don’t you think??
