Today was a nice day, but I will talk about that some other time. Over the weekend I talked to my grandma in California.
I have been so blessed with my grandparents. I already wrote about my Austrian grandma who has a heart of gold. She teaches me about Austria and helps me with my German and she helps the mentally handicapped. She even goes as far as to manage one man's finances so that no one takes advantage of him and so he spends it wisely. She always loads me up on Austrian chocolates before I go back to the USA. I love her dearly and I hope to go back again and visit her.
My grandma and grandpa on my dad's side are such wonderful people. They are in their eighties and STILL work like normal people. My grandma helps manage her inn and my grandpa is an architect and has a few clients. This gives me hope that I will be young, vibrant and hardworking when I am their age.
Most importantly they have hearts of gold. They are still so much in love like a young couple and my grandma reminds me everytime I visit of how much they love eachother. They also volunteer at their local church. The old ladies there love my grandpa. He brings them cakes. He also spends time with the sick.
They have always told me how much they loved me, and my grandma never spared any hugs. I am independent and hate to ask for financial help, but after I came back from Spain I was in such a bind. And my grandma helped me out and said that she was happy to help and told me how much she loved me. And that made me feel so loved and greatful.
She always held me close and told me how much she loved me. I go up and visit her every Thanksgiving and she never forgets to tell me how much she loves me and thinks about me. And that means so much to me. In fact when the whole family gets together during that time there is so much love. A lot of us have times when we are away because our family is full of travelers. My dad used to travel all the time on business, and my other two cousins are traveling about in Asia. I was in Spain last year. I think this year we all might be united.
Anyways, that's all for today. I hope you are all as blessed as I have been in the grandparent department.
