    "Sweet" That's The Word That Describes Them.

    My grandparents are very sweet. They are in their 80's but they are still sweet and together. Sometimes I thought... what is their secret for a sweet and lasting relationship?... My grandfather is 5 years older than my grandmother. Both of them are the youngest among their...

    Not Equally..

    I feel a bit guilty to say this, but it's nothing but the truth: I always liked my mum's parents a lot more than my father's parents. From what I can say, my grandparents on my father's side, weren't really having a good marriage. And they are/were very strict persons, and very...

    My Grandparents Are Pretty Awesome For Old People..

    My grandparents are awesome. That's the simplest way I can put it. They live in another city from me and my family so we don't get to see them more than once a month, twice if we're lucky. Whenever we do see them we usually go up to their house for the weekend. My brother hangs...

    They Are the Best People I Know.

    Growing up, I was fortunate enough to live about 1/3 of a mile down the road from my maternal grandparents (I'm not quite as familiar with my grandparents on my dad's side; I only see his mother every couple of years, and didn't meet his father until I was 14 years old), so I got...

    I love my grandparents sooo much.

    It's fun Skype-ing them, since they learned how to. Just watching my grandfather's face light up when he sees my sister and me there. Also the fact that in the background you can hear my grandmother yelling 'he is lying!!' Now I know where my sister got her wit from.

    My Grandparents Are Among My Best Friends!

    I think my Grandparents are the only people that have ever loved me unconditionally. They have never judged me and have never made me feel like a bad person. They simply don't make people like them anymore, and that makes me sad.

    My grandparents are some of the funniest people

    I've ever seen. My grandpa is really quiet and mumbles to himself all the time, and then just cackles because he thought he was funny. Then when you ever do catch what he said, it is something hilarious. And he's always sarcastic. I never noticed until I was grown. I guess that...

    What I Got From Grandpa

    I think the best gift that I ever got from Grandpa, was his ability to give. Grandpa has always been a giver, and he gives out of the kindness of his heart. I know that because of him, I've gotten into the habit of doing the same. I am extremely thankful for that.
