Darrien Middleton witnessed a seriously sweet moment two weeks ago, and had to share it on Facebook. The result — a photo of her grandmother Wilma Bray sitting on her Tennessee porch with a first-grader named Caleb — will warm your heart.
"For the first time that day he moved his arm in attempts to pet his Lil Fee," she says. "It was a moment I’ll never forget."
It's true that love makes you happy. But can that in love glow also help you stay looking young forever? A couple of Georgia grandparents put it to the test.
Touched teens and young adults are sharing on Twitter that their grandparents are printing out their selfies and framing them.
A marriage spanning 65 years with 3 children, 4 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren was captured in a super-sweet photo shoot.
Grandfather and granddaughter donned fur coats, fedoras, and sunglasses to whip and nae-nae for the camera — and of course it ended up on Twitter.
For graduation, a teen’s grandmother gave her a journal she’d been keeping about her for 18 years. A little cash, a gift card, maybe an inspirational book — those seem like reasonable high school graduation gifts to expect from grandparents. “My grandma’s graduation gift was priceless,” Maddie wrote Wednesday on Twitter.
92-year-old Mary LaCava (not pictured) has been sending handwritten notes with $20 to all her grandkids in college — a practice she can finally stop now that the last one is graduating. A 92-year-old grandmother (soon to be 93) who sent her grandkids in school $20 and a handwritten note every week is drawing the practice to a close. Some of her grandchildren saved the money, others spent it right away, but they all say the handwritten notes made their days.
Lauren Blank’s grandfather wrote about all the days they spent together from when she was 2 to 5. If you had the pleasure of growing up with a loving grandfather, this story will have you reaching for the tissues. Texas teen Lauren Blank was gifted with a series of journals from her grandpa, who wrote down a daily account of their times together from the time she was 2 until she was 5, on her 16th birthday last week.
A 4-year-old girl and an elderly man have struck up a sweet and special friendship. Mom of seven Tara Wood, who lives in Augusta, Ga., shared on Facebook how her daughter Norah — who has said in the past how much she loves elderly people because “they walk slow like I walk slow and they [have] soft skin like I [have] soft skin” — met and befriended 82-year-old Dan Peterson, whom she affectionately calls Mr. Dan. It all started when Tara took Nora to the grocery store in September to pick up cupcakes for the 4-year-old’s birthday.
One couple seen on Twitter recently certainly proves that vows are still meant to be taken very seriously — and it’s possibly the thing that will make you believe in true love again.
