Grandmothers are the Closest Thing to Living Angels

Dear Grandma,

They say that grandmothers are the closest things to living angels, and you know what? They’re right. There are not nearly enough words to tell you exactly how much you mean to me, how proud I am to be your granddaughter, and how much I love and cherish you. 

For the past 23 years, you have played a crucial role in my life. You helped raise me into the young woman I am today. Along with mom and dad, you and grandpa were always there for me – for everything I’ve ever done. To say a simple “thank you” will never be enough. 

Of course, I remember all of the Grandparents days, science fairs, school concerts and plays, dance recitals, sleepovers, Sunday dinners, holidays, and every special event that we enjoyed together. Those moments and memories fill my heart with lots of joy, laughter, warmth, and smiles. 

When I was little, I always looked up to you, and now, as I continue to grow older, my respect and admiration for you grows too. You have a strength in you that I can only hope to have someday. I know you might not always think or see it, but I do. Every, single day. 

I’m so proud of you for everything you’ve accomplished and overcome in your life. I don’t know many people who have the type of endurance, feisty-ness and spunk that you do. I love hearing your stories of the good old days, learning Polish words from you, and just simply spending time with you. 

You’re my biggest writing advocate, anxiety helper, favorite goulash maker, best chocolate roll baker, and so much more. You always give me confidence when I need it the most, and you always make me feel like I matter, like I’m special. But, most of all, and most importantly, you are my grandma, and my lifelong friend whom I love to the moon and back.  

All my love, xoxo

Your granddaughter
