A Walk to Remember

Thoughtful Thursday: A Walk to Remember

The bond little ones have with their grandparents is unbreakable. Four-year-old Lilly loves her great-grandma so much that she is determined to find a cure for Alzheimer’s for her. Lilly’s fight to end Alzheimer’s began a year ago when she started asking for donations from her neighbors for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year, Lilly has participated in raising money by serving at lemonade stands with her cousins and now she wants to receive a contribution from all 50 states. Each time she collects a pledge from a new state, she colors in the state on her map of the U.S.

Although Lilly’s great-grandma doesn’t always remember her, she knows that her nanny loves her very much. To Lilly, donating money to this wonderful cause isn’t just about helping her great-grandma; it’s about helping everyone that is suffering from this disease.

We wish Lilly the best of luck with receiving pledges from all 50 states! This Thoughtful Thursday, we honor the devotion this great granddaughter has for her nanny.

7 Reasons Why Being an Aunt and Uncle is Wonderful

7 reasons why being an aunt and uncle is wonderful

In honor of Aunt and Uncle’s Day, here are 7 reasons why being one of these special relatives is so wonderful:

  1. When they babysit they get to experience what life with kids is like. The only difference is they still get to enjoy sleeping through the night!
  2. Nieces and nephews will be honest with their aunts and uncles about anything.
  3. Kids will actually listen to the advice their aunts and uncles give.
  4. They get to have a blast at their nephew and nieces’ birthday parties, but don’t have to clean up the mess afterwards (unless they are asked to help)!
  5. Uncles and aunts get to relive their childhood through their nieces and nephews.
  6. Kids treat their aunts and uncles like their best friends.
  7. Aunts and uncles get to spoil their nieces and nephews on their birthdays and holidays, which makes them the favorite relative (for at least two days).

To all the aunts and uncles out there, we are wishing you an amazing day with the special little ones in your life!
