It was refreshing to see a new grandpa come in and assume the role of caretaker for grandma and her baby on the way, in the beginning of your tale. Also,I imagined myself as grandma enjoying the raising of her family while at home like I did, without any regrets. Job well done.

What an amazing tribute to your grandparents. I liked how you kept repeating the line, "We're a family"
This is a beautiful tribute to the heads of your family. I have a poem about my son that I add to every couple of years. I could see you adding even more to this as each generation gives birth to the next. What a lovely family heirloom.
I liked this very much. Halfway through I thought, this sounds like a song. Maybe it still will be.

I enjoy the theme and tribute, not just to your grandparents, but to everyone who works hard and struggles for their family.

Well written - thanks for sharing.
