Take a Minute
Today I got to have dinner with my Pawpaw and Nanaw, afterwards we went to starbucks to grab a coffee and chat. As I sat there and told my Nanaw about what’s next for Eula Fern’s, I realized how incredibly blessed I am to have her support my dreams and care about what is going on in my life. My Nanaw has always been special to me but it has been incredible to see our bond grow as we have grown this business. Since she is Eula Fern’s daughter I know that this business means just as much to her as it does to the rest of us. Back in May we almost lost my Nanaw; she was in the hospital for a week and had several close calls. Two of those nights I stayed at the hospital to help take care of my Nanaw. It was a hard week, but that week I realized that a grandparents relationship isn’t like any other relationship in your life. My Nanaw and Pawpaw raised my mom to make her the exceptional woman she is today, and they are the link to my dear cousins who are practically siblings. Grandparents are a source of wisdom and laughter, but they also are the tie to what makes your family so special. In todays society we are constantly pushed forward on to the next great thing. Often that makes us forget to appreciate today and what it has to offer. So, sometime soon, go get some coffee with your, Nanaw, Meemaw, Grandma, Mammaw, or who ever it may be, gain some wisdom and take a minute just to appreciate the day.
