Up to now that I'm 51 years old already, I still cherries the happy memories that I experienced with my Lolo and Lola, I'm not their favorite grandson but I have lots of nice things that I can say to them and lots of things also that I learned from them. I can still remember vividly when I asked my Lolo (grandfather), I think I'm already 7 years old that time. " Is the month of March a 30 or 31?" And his response is a rhyme " 30 days of September, April, June and November all the rest are 31 except February alone". That rhyme I can not forget up to now and even his voice still in my mind. How about you? do you have stories about them?

That is actually a Nursery Rhyme that sadly (like the rest) kids of today no longer know about - it's really sad because they're lives are lacking the rhymes and fables as well. Further, yeah I have very fond memories of my grandparents (well, particularly my grandmothers and a grandfather because I never met my other grandfather), they were extremes, on one side they were relaxed on the other side of the family they were hardworkers always in the business and in the farm. We got so much fond memories being with them and the fondest of it all, as I could recall is when they gave me pottery set of kitchen wares hehehe.. Not to mention that spending time with them is just great. They know so much and could have stories that dates back the time they were kids! OH how life is great when they we were younger, unlike now that most people just spend more time online than with those who are physically with us. Which is why families should go out spend time together without gadgets or anything, just be a family for once.

I can imagine that there is a smile in your face while making your response. He he he. I am always telling my kids how unlucky they are that they have nothing of any experience having a Lolo, but fortunately they have two Lolas where one is still alive and kicking like a raging bull being more than 90 years old already, he he he. Thanks

That's great then. You should have them spend more time talking to their lolas because they would surely not regret those.

I love my grandparents so much especially my grandmother in my mother side. I also love my grandmother in my father side but I dont get to see her very often cause her house is really far from our house. My grandmother whom I always see is my mother's mother who is really sweet. She is always present when we are celebrating our birthdays and she never forgets them even if she's already over 80 years old. When I was away, she said she's not gonna die yet cause she is going to wait for me to come back. I dont my grandmother to die but we know it will come but I am happy to think that families are forever so I get to be with her for a much longer time.

your're lucky to have her that long so make the most out of it, take advantage of every opportunity that you'll be with her so that you will not regret later that you've fail to do what you should have done to her. It's a reality that all people will die so if we really love someone, show it now and not when she could no longer appreciate it.

I love my grandma and grandpa and I truly miss them. I have many fond memories of them when they were still alive. Like with my grandfather, we went to his province to get his birth certificate. It was a 9 hour travel. He was in his 80's that time and still has a good memory to think that he hasn't been able to visit his birthplace for decades. He still remembered the places of his hometown and he was very happy that time because he was able to go back to his province. With my grandmother, she always supported me in all my endeavors and how she appreciated me when I took care of her while she was hospitalized. Actually I grew up with them. They looked after me when I was alone when my whole family was in abroad. I'm very thankful that they were my grandparents.
