Celebrating Grandmothers on Mother's Day

Mother’s Day brings to mind brunches and flowers, children and families coming together to celebrate the strong, loving and supportive women in their lives who have created cherished memories, and chocolate. Never forget the chocolate. As important as your mother is, this Mother’s Day, let grandmothers know how much you care too! Whether she lives nearby or visits when she can, grandmothers play a very special role in families.

While I live on the sunny west coast, my grandmother lives way up in the northeast, along a pleasant riverside in New Brunswick, Canada. I spent many summers with my grandparents, watching old VHS videos in their musty basement, tormenting the cats, exploring under decks and around mysterious sheds, and playing cards with the grownups until I fell asleep on the stairs listening to the sounds of my aunts and uncles singing together and laughing over old stories.
