Remember our ‘cutest couple’ we voted on a few days ago HERE?
Well, with your help, they blew out their competition! Thousands of you voted and helped make this family’s dream come true!
Thank-you so much!
Any guesses where Grandaughter and Grandpa went for lunch? If you’re an avid reader of this blog, you may guess…
Mission Springs Brewing Company! Nice choice!!
(see the photoshoot HERE)
And here’s what granddaughter Traci says:
Yeah! We won by about 2,300 votes! Grandma loved the flowers and put them beside her bed table, she was really surprised. We also printed off pictures of everyone’s comments they left on the photo and shares and put it into an album. I read them all to her yesterday, she was very touched by the support and love by people that didn’t even know her. She is also very selfless so she doesn’t think she deserves much recognition but I know it means a lot to her to have so many encouraging and especially positive thoughts for her.
We took Grandpa out for lunch where he enjoyed a beef dip, and the rest of my family joined us as well: my mom, dad and brother.
When we told them about the contest they were very flattered about the whole thing, mostly shy and confused because they didn’t understand Facebook. But I know it’s been the highlight for the past few months. Grandma looks at the comments from everyone in her room and it brings her a lot of encouragement.
I think Mission Springs was the perfect place to take him, 2 mins away from the hospital and we all looooved the style! (my mom got the idea from your page of course) Grandpa loved it! He talked about the truck in the roof the whole time, like how he had one just like it himself when my dad was young. My dad thought it would be a smart idea to ride his tricycle off the back of it and wiped out. It brought back a lot of funny memories for Grandpa!
Other than that we’ve been spending a lot of time at her bedside just talking and telling stories. I laid with Grandma for awhile and massaged her hands and arms (I’m a week away from being a Registered Massage Therapist) so that helped her quite a lot.
As a couple they are doing well, my Grandpa is in and out visiting her about 6 or 7 times a day and takes care of her comfort and needs.
Thanks so much for sharing our story with your followers! This wouldn’t have happened without them!
Tell me your day just got better too… *sniff*
