I've wondered what made my Grandparents so special--mine were story book Grandparents (always glad to have a house FULL of kids, Grandma always had homemade cookies ready and Grandpa would sneak us treats from his study.) I think the bottom line is that they got IT--they understand that life is all about family and that as long as their family was around them, they were happy. And they passed that sense of family unity on to my parents and now on to me and my children. There is a lot I want out of life but it all boils down to doing what is best for my little family--both temporally and spiritually. So thank you Grandma and Grandpa Ahlstrom, for setting such great examples, raising wonderful children and sacrificing so much for your family!
