Author Alayne Kay Christian is holding a writing contest in honor of National Grandparent’s Day on 8th September. I’m betting there are going to be some really great stories to be read! I’m thinking I may have to enter this one.
Donna L Sadd tells us a wonderful story about her husband, Bobby and his grandparents. One of the greatest gifts a kid can have is grandparents. My own grandparents, Jim and Lucy Wright were quite likely the strongest influences in my life. It’s a rare day I don’t think about them.
Enjoy Donna’s essay here.
My Grandparents, Jim & Lucy Wright
About Ol' Big Jim
Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama.
For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.

I think you should enter that one. I only wish you had the chance to know my mother better. Go for it.
I wish I’d known her better, too. Ten years isn’t enough to have a Nanny!
