10/29/11 Papa and Grandma: My Heroes

I get to see my grandparents once a week. It’s not enough for me. I think about them constantly throughout my day; I wonder how they are feeling, if they are healthy and happy, and when I will see them or talk to them next.

I worry almost every night that I will wake up the next morning and will have lost one of them. I have been so lucky to been so tied to my grandparents’ lives- I spent my entire summers with them during the day, I was taken to and from school for about 10 years, and if my parents were ever upsetting me, grandma was the first person I would call. Throughout college and a short while after, I was busy. Distant. I can’t believe I wasn’t there more often. I feel so selfish sometimes. Now that my grandma has Parkinson’s which is affecting her mobility and often times her mind, I am trying to see them at every moment possible. 

Seeing my family, especially my grandparents, is my number one priority these days. Sometimes I get caught up in things I have to do or trivial worries, but I always remember that I have two beautiful people that I need to call and see and make known that they are loved by me, because so far for the past 24 years, I have felt nothing but love from them.
