#LoveJatao to your grandparents by cherishing their memories!

She talked animatedly while talking to her grandma. Wow! her grandma looks after her even she is away from home – I thought. How many people might be calling her? Her dad, mom, siblings and best part, her grandparents!

After good 15 minutes of the talk, she kept the phone down and returned to me. We were good friends meeting after a long time. We had a long chat, she served me and some snacks and finally, waved goodbye to her to go home. 

We always manage some time for our friends but do we do the same with our grandparents? Unfortunately, I was too young when my grandparents expired. Their existence during my childhood mattered to me a lot, especially my grandma. She was there before I turned 10 and so are my memories of her are blurred. 

My grandma was quite strict and would often scold us. She used to visit frequently each and every house of her grown children and us, as her grandchildren. She wouldn’t stay long but her presence would dominate the house. Little did I know that she would no longer be there when I’ll be all grown-up girl! 

Often I think what if I had my grandparents around my growing years, what would have been my teenage years? 

On this Grandparents Day, I feel overwhelmed that if she would have been here today, I would have cherished every day like this: 

Since I am not good at making hair braid, so I would have let my grandma do the honor with my crowning glory! My evenings wouldn’t have ended with a Whatsapp chat but a nice, hot hair massage. She would have taught me so many lessons of #LoveJatao and I would’ve gladly listened to them. 

I would have told about my BFFs and she would have lent an ear to me. Gossiping would have been so much different with her! 

I could embrace her often only to make me warmer in her arms and she would have advised one or two with her wise vision. 

Life could have been so much better if she would have here with me to #LoveJatao

My mornings and my evenings would have been so much dreamier and warmer, only if I had my grandma alive. However, I cherish these imagined memories that I recreated and I cherish those which have got blurred with time. 

I celebrate this Grandparents Day by recalling old memories of her. I look forward to hear from you how would you celebrate Grandparents Day. Do share a selfie with your grandparents on Sept. 10, 2017 on Twitter or Facebook with #LoveJatao & tag @blogadda to win a goodie from Parachute Advansed.
