This upcoming Sunday is Grandparents’ Day. It is celebrated the first Sunday in September after Labor Day. If you are lucky enough to still have your grandparents, please spend time with them. Show them they are important. If they are far away, give them a call or send them a card to make them know they are loved.
All of my grandparents have passed, but their love rekindles every time I retell one of their stories or recall a special moment I shared with them.
I am honored to be telling at R.E.L Washington Elementary School (YISD) this Friday, September 7, and helping to celebrate the grandparents in their school community. My Grandmother Zenaida, is the inspiration for this particular performance, El Pájaro Cu, since she always had birds in her house and loved to sing along with them.
