You may or may not be aware that this Sunday, Sept. 13 is National Grandparents Day here in the United States.

It has been formally recognized since way back in 1978 when Congress passed and then President Jimmy Carter signed the official proclamation that “The first Sunday in September following Labor Day is designated to honor grandparents and 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.”
