Grandparents Day Sept. 9, 2018  Honor Elders Today

by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe Grandmother Brown Hawaii image

Honor elders, especially grandparents today on Sept. 9, 2018. Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day annually.

Surprisingly, Grandparents Day was not artificially created by the greeting card industry. Instead it was a mother of 15 children, 43 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild named Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade of West Virginia who spurred the creation of Grandparents Day. 

The first presidential proclamation of Grandparents Day was by Jimmy Carter in 1979. There are three purposes for National Grandparents Day


.  To honor grandparents. 


.  To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children's children.


.  To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

  2. The side photo is of my husband Steve's beloved grandmother "Mama Denney" (in pink, now late) surrounded by her son Dennis, daughter Kim (now late), our family and extended family during a visit to her house in Honolulu, Hawaii in the early 2000's.

    To anyone lucky enough to have living grandparents, honor, celebrate and spend time with your grandparents today on Grandparents Day.

    Thanks for reading "Grandparents Day Sept. 9, Honor Elders Today".

What great pictures those are, Michelle!  And, I like how everyone pictured has on either pink, pink/red or blue.  Did they plan it that way.
