Grandparents. They’re the quiet yet amused voice that says yes when our parents say no. They never forget a birthday, even if sometimes, they forget how to spell your name. And for some unfathomable reason, the meals they cook are always the best. Win or lose, they always have a warm smile and comforting hug waiting just for us. Their presence keeps us grounded, because they represent our roots. They remind us of home. 

My Lolo and Lola holds a very special place in my heart. They are that important to me.
While growing up, I was raised by my Lola because both my parents are OFW, Inang, which is what I call my Lola would always give her best just to take care of me. Even to the point when we got so broke, she still worked hard as a dressmaker just to support our needs and help me finish my studies. I have a lot of fondest memories with my grandparents, my lolo would always bring me different kinds of fruits and taught me how to climb a Guava tree! 
My Lola cooks the best dishes. She cooks the best Menudo, Mechado, Embotido, Leche Flan, Spaghetti and more! I remember how I would make lambing to her just so she would cook Spaghetti or Sopas even if there's no special occasion. The best thing is when she would help me finish my assignments and would even prepare meryenda for me just so I would be more energetic to finish it ahead of time. Lastly, she would always want me to scratch her back or I would earn 50 cents per "bunot ng puting buhok" to my Lola! It may sound funny back then but I somehow love doing it and got used to doing it with Inang.

 I remember all her advice and she influenced me to read novels and english pocketbooks so that I can speak and write english fluently. She made me understand that in order for me to enjoy a good life, you have to work hard to earn it. 
I will be forever thankful that I was blessed with wonderful grandparents.
They gave a whole new meaning to my life and if there is such a thing as reincarnation?
and I was given the chance to choose people in my life once again, I would gladly ask to have them again as my grandparents.

Grandparents have a special place in everyone’s hearts that a day was declared just for them! This September 7, make your grandparents feel loved, the way they’ve done for you all life.

SM Supermalls believes in the value of family, so they’ve lined up special treats and activities that you and your grandparents can enjoy, in honor of their special day: 

A family that prays together, stays together. Bring lolo and lola to mass at an SM mall on September 7. There will be a special blessing for grandparents right after the ceremony.
