Happy Grandparents Day!

Just wishing every Grandparents in the whole world most especially to my Grandparents Lola Bing and Lolo Garing a Happy Grandparents Day. My Grandparents are the most important persons in my Life, I do love them so much. I am so thankful each and everyday for their undying Love and support, I wont be the person I am today without them.

Heres a little history about Grandparents Day. The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
