Wonder-Grandmas!!!


Photo taken by Sacha Goldberger
Everything begins and ends with Grandmas…
We are here today because of Grandmas and
we are who we are for the same reasons.
Our Grandmas have begun traditions, taught
us how to cook, how to behave and how to
 be strong.


Grandmas are no wusses!!
Hail to all of the Grandmas of the world!
Where would we be without them in our lives???
And, we honor those Grandmas who are no longer with us…as well as the memories they left us with.
Read this heartwarming story about how, and why, this grandson got his Grandma dressed up in a superhero costume:
A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes….

Then, send your Grandma a card, say a prayer for her, give her a call or just whisper that you love her…She deserves it. (If you have small children have them draw pictures, or send Grandma updated photos of them.)

Truly,
Amber

  1. I truly enjoyed your story about Grandmas. You are so right about Grandmothers! My grandmother is/was my world. She taught me so much about life. I am the person I am today because of my grandmother. She was such a strong lady. Her faith is what carried her through. When times got tough she would say, "You need to get down on your knees at night and thank the good LORD." I only hope that I can take the values and teachings that she has shared with me and apply them in my daily life within my family. She was my mother before she was my grandmother. May she rest in peace knowing my life was enriched because of her.

  2. Thank you for sharing your very personal story:) Your grandmother surely knew what she was doing. She gave you her wisdom so that you could share it with your family...and you are probably doing it on daily basis without even realizing it. I can relate to your grandmother being your mother first; my grandmother in many ways was the mother I never had when I was growing up. The bond, as you know, is quite strong. Thank you again and I am sorry your grandmother is no longer here in the physical form; but it is very apparent she is still with you in spirit. Thank you again.
