Happy Grandparents Day!

Today is Grandparents Day - it is an actual holiday which is celebrated each year on the second Sunday in September. It began when a 9-year-old boy, Russell Capper, sent a letter to President Richard Nixon in 1969 asking him to set aside a day to celebrate grandparents. In 1977, senators and congress passed a joint resolution for a National Grandparents' Day. Congress passed the resolution. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation and the first National Grandparents' Day was celebrated on September 10, 1978.

Grandparents do make a difference in the lives of the children entrusted to them - every day should be a day when we do this whether in person, or from a distance over tech, or most certainly through our prayers.

So, celebrate Grandparents Day today, and make every day a day when you make a difference in the lives of your grandchildren.

Happy Grandparents Day!
