Grandparents Day — the Werther's Original of Hallmark holidays falls on Sunday, Sept. 8. There is perhaps no relationship in my life that had more of a profound effect on me than the one I shared with my MawMaw. Over the years, she made more than a few appearances on my Instagram feed, and finding the right words to describe my love for her wasn't always easy. That is why I understand why people might struggle to find the perfect Instagram captions for Grandparents Day. Not to worry, because I'm here to help.
Whether your grandparents are alive or have passed away, or you're speaking about your parents in their roles as Grandma and Grandpa, it's difficult to put your gratitude for these people in words. They're one of life's most special gifts. When it comes to my own grandparents, I tend to either stick with something funny — as my MawMaw would love — or famous quotes from books, songs, and movies. With my parents, a lot of my thoughts revolve around, "Jeez, Louise, they let my kids get away with way more than they ever let me." Which, I would argue, is a very valid point, and one that I'm sure my children will remind me of when I am a grandmother.
