My Grandma aka An Incredibly Amazing Woman

thankful for grandma

November begins The Thankful Project blog challenge with Kenzie at Chasing Happy. It is a 28 day blog challenge to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness, especially leading up to Thanksgiving. I have wanted to do a blog challenge for a while and I thought this would be a great one to work on. Her topics are real and the first one especially had me in a place of gratitude.

Today, is Day 1 of the challenge and the topic is 'a person.' It took me know time at all to know exactly the person in my life that I am most thankful for. She is kind, smart, strong-willed, loving beyond anything, and my grandma.

I look up to her. She has dealt with some incredibly terrible situations in her life, but has been strong and persevering. I really admire her strength. Not only is she incredibly strong, but has a heart of gold. She would do anything for anyone at the drop of a hat. No matter anyone's needs, she will be the first to help.

She has been a solid, foundational person in my life. No matter what venture or ambitious I set out to achieve, she was behind me 100%. She would come to my games, band concerts, pageants, and so on. If I had a sewing project or a crafty need, she was there and more than willing to help me and extended her creative thoughts.

I am not really sure she knows the impact she has had on my life (she will now, she reads my blog). She is always there and always steps up when I need someone in the hardest times. Grandma, you truly are a gem and I am immensely thankful for your tremendous love and compassion. You inspire me daily and I hope that I may one day be a grandma as great as you.
