My grandparents are my inspiration. There aren't enough words to say how much they mean to me and how they have impacted my life. When Jared and I went up there last weekend, I was delighted to see an old scrapbook of when my "Pa" was in the Navy. I could never imagine what it would be like to be away from someone you love for that long, but my granparents pulled through. Seeing the letters and postcards he had written her while he was away made my day. Old letter and pictures are my favorites to look at; there is just something about taking a trip back in time where life was simpler. A love that lasts like theirs is so hard to come by these days, and I am so blessed to have an example of what real love looks like. And let's be honest, my grandfather was a handsome man; who doesn't like a man in uniform? No wonder my grandmother stuck by him all this time.
