{A Very Special Day... And Many Thanks}

What an incredible weekend I'm approaching! Not only are we celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow and traveling to Hilton Head to relax with Jeff's family, but today marks a very special day for my family.... it is my Grandfather's 69th Birthday, AND his very last day at work-- after working for more than 56 years, he is RETIRING!! For the past few weeks, I have tried to wrap my head around the thought of what it must feel like to retire after working for so long, but I can't seem to imagine it at all.

When my Mom and her 2 sisters were growing up, my Grandfather worked 2 jobs just to provide for them and give them the best life he could... my Grandparents have sacrificed so much of themselves for the betterment of our family, and the selflessness they offer simply can't be matched. They have been there for me through everything--They took care of me like a 2nd set of parents when my Mother had to travel when I was young. They came to every dance recital, every softball game, and made my world most important to them.  Our family is so close-because they made each of us stronger, and let us make our own decisions, but have been there to back us up whenever we needed them. I am so thankful for their love, their devotion, and their support. And even happier that now they get to enjoy another chapter of their lives together--since they've practically gone everywhere and already done everything {they've traveled to all 50 states}, who knows what is next for them, but I know it's going to be fun to take a backseat and enjoy the ride... maybe they'll get themselves a Harley Davidson =)

CONGRATS PAPA-- I AM SO HAPPY AND PROUD OF YOU AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I LOVE YOU...
