Thank You Nannie and Pop

Thank You Nannie and Pop

God knew what he was doing when he made us family!

Well, I’m sitting here trying to think of what to say and I honestly don’t know where to start. If any of you have the privilege of knowing my grandparents, you should consider yourself lucky. I literally don’t know what I would do without them. They constantly push me to be the best I can be, love me for who I am, help me with anything and everything and so much more. I couldn’t think of two better people to look up to my whole life and strive to be like.

Thank you Nannie for coming to eat lunch with me as much as you could in Kindergarten because I cried almost everyday. It’s the little things like that that I’ll remember forever.

Thank you Pop for helping me with my homework every single time I call. Whether its Math, Science, or English you understand it all. Don’t know what I would have done without your help on that project the night before it was due.

Thank you both for always pushing me to be the best I can be no matter what. Whether it was school, sports, or anything you both always pushed me outside my comfort zone and encouraged me to be the best me I could be.

Thank you for always supporting me. You have no idea how much that means to me and how appreciative I am that you both are always on my side. I wouldn’t want to go to anyone else with my problems because I know that no matter what you both will help me get through it either way.

Thank you for raising my mom the way she is because without her I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

Thank you for always having the best food at your house and making sure I never go hungry. I can always count on Nannie to make something good!

Thank you Pop for always having a joke to tell and putting a smile on my face. Even if it takes me a minute to get it.

Thank you for never missing a soccer game or any function I had. Y’all will never know how much I appreciated you both being my biggest supporters and number one fans. Through the rain or shine, I could always count on y’all to be there cheering me on.

Thanking you for always challenging me in my faith and encouraging me to become a better Christian everyday. I look up to the people you both are and hope to be half the person you are today.

I could go on and on thanking you both for all you do. It would probably be a never ending list because you’ll never know how thankful I am for the both of you. I hope you know how much I love y’all. I take you both for granted way too much and don’t step back to realize just how much you do for me. Y’all are perfect in my eyes and I wouldn’t want any other grandparents. God knew what he was doing when he made us family!

To My Grandfather, Thank You

I am continuously grateful for your ongoing presence in my life.


Thanksgiving has come and passed, but the third Thursday of each November should not be the only day we show our appreciation and our gratitude to the ones we love the most. As the remainder of the holiday season continues to warm each of our hearts, it is important to look beyond the parties and the presents that come our way. In the midst of enjoying these special times, we must not place the material objects at the forefronts of our minds. Instead, we must share in these moments with the special people in our lives, and celebrate them in the process.

For me, this special person has always been my Papa Carl, and will continue to be for the rest of my life. Since I was a child, my friendship with my grandfather is one that has remained consistent in my greatest of moments and my toughest of times. In a similar sense, not only has it remained consistent, but it has grown into a beautiful lifetime of memories that I hold ever so close to my heart. From celebrating the holidays together, to planning family dinners or simply sitting down at his favorite restaurant for a strong cup of coffee and a great conversation, he and I have developed a lasting bond that I know can never be broken.

My Papa is one of the strongest, most hard-working people I have encountered in my life. He displays an attitude of integrity and independence that I admire endlessly. From his exemplary career as a carpenter to his loving role as a husband, father and grandfather, his strength continuously inspires me to be the best person that I can. As his only grandchild, I strive to make him proud in all that I do and all that I become.

Papa, I love you dearly, and I am so proud to call you my grandfather. I am grateful for your presence not only in this time of thanksgiving and celebration, but within every day of my life.
