Grandparents are the type of people families can rely on. They feed us when we're hungry, they care for our babies, they love us, warts and all. Grandparents also connect us to our past; they help us understand the road our family has traveled.
If you've got ones who care, give them a hug and a prayer of thanks. Because grandparents are special. They want what's best for you and your children.
Celebrate their place in your world by sending us a photo and tell us why you think your grandparent is grand. It can be a picture of your family, one of your grandparent with their grandkids, or it can be you with a grandparent who made a difference in your life.
We're gathering a collection of photographs that reflect the important role grandparents play in family life. We'll be posting them here — just in time for Grandparent's Day on Sunday, September 9th — and in the November issue of Memphis Parent magazine.
LET US HEAR FROM YOU — Send your photo to Janes@memphisparent.com with BEST GRANDPARENT in the subject head. Don't forget to tell us what makes your grandparent special.
