Visit

I know to most people “going to grandma’s” for a visit is a weekly event, but for my family it happened once or twice a year. 
My grandparents lived 13 hours away (both sets), and as a kid I didn’t understand the value of those two weeks every summer in this tiny little town that felt a little bit like Mayberry.

But now I am all grown up. I am so thankful for those two weeks every summer that we spent in New Mexico visiting family. I cherish the memories made of fishing with my grandpa, an m&m machine that operated off of pennies, orange push-pops, guitars on the lawn, and home-made ice cream.

I don’t get to go very often anymore, the whole grown up thing tends to get in the way but I hope that my family knows how much I love them, and how much I really do enjoy “going to grandma’s.”

  1. That is so sweet. My grandparents lived too far away to visit often. One set lived in another country, and the other set were a few states away. This past year, my last grandparent, my grandma, died. I treasure those visits more now than I ever did as a kid.
    Thank you for your words, you revived some sweet, sweet memories for me.
    I am visiting you from FMF.
