On Memorable Seasons one of my favorite scrapbooking sites we have started a weekly blog challenge. This weeks blog challenge is to blog about something we did as a child that we are proud about now as an adult.
When I was young both sets of my grandparents lived about 3 hours from us, although there was a big difference, my dads mom and stepdad were doing okay for themselves and were fairly healthy but on the other hand my mom's parents, my grandma and grandpa Yager were not as lucky, they were always struggling to make ends meet and my grandfather had a heart condition and my grandmother not only was a brittle diabetic but also had a severe curvature of the spine.
Whenever we went to visit them which was as often as we could as my parents worried about them and tried to help them out, I would always notice that my grandmothers bathroom was dirty with built up soap scum and the floor was in need of mopping. It made sense since she could not get down to clean the tub or toilet or the floor since her back was so severely curved. So I would quietly go off to the bathroom and clean the bathroom as best as I could for my young age to surprise my grandmother. I can still remember how much I enjoyed doing it for her.
Now when I look back at those days, I am so glad that I did that for her. I was not able to do much else for her but I as sure she knew that I loved her!
