My Amazing Grandmother – And Her Texts

When you think that our grandparents grew up without computers and even TV in some cases, it’s amazing that many older folks are adapting to new technology. This past Christmas we introduced my Grandmother to the cell phone and…texting.

My Grandparents are inspirations. They are both in their 80s and still own and operate a successful business in Island Heights. They don’t stop and are always up to a challenge.

We try to keep in touch as often as possible, but sometimes schedules don’t mesh and you don’t end up talking as much as wanted.

My Grandmother got a flip phone and was determined to learn. She has one of those phone where you still have to press the number two three times to type a “c.” Oh, how we’ve all become spoiled by the smartphone. But I digress.

I forgot to put Grammy’s new number in my phone, so I had no idea it was when she sent me her first text.

In a months time, “Grammy” has become a texting machine and has even been able to text me pictures. I got this today.

My respect for my Grandmother goes beyond technology. She is wise, kind and always positive. She enjoys the simple things in life, like the sight of this flower in her yard today.

There’s a lot that can be learned from that.

There are a lot of cool Grandparents at The Point. Laurie’s Grandfather is an amazing man and always good for a funny one liner, or advice.
