More than 35 years ago, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated annually on the first Sunday after Labor Day in the U.S.
From the National Grandparents Day website – this day has a threefold purpose:
“To honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.”
Androids4Seniors welcomes all our visitors and subscribers from the U.S on this special day and especially those who have installed our app from the latest Sprint ID Pack that celebrates our seniors and provide apps that may be of use and interest to them.
Here are some of our favourite grandparent quotes:
“What a bargain grandchildren are! I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars’ worth of pleasure.” Gene Perret
“What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.” Rudy Giuliani
“Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete.” Marcy DeMaree
Enjoy the day. Maybe let us know in the comments what your kids or grandkids did with you to celebrate the day?
