However, on the first Sunday after Labor Day, there is an often-forgotten holiday that we think should be celebrated every year: National Grandparents Day. Afterall, it is the patriarchs and matriarchs of the family who fill our stomachs with the most delicious food, our arms with the warmest hugs and our hearts with the best memories. We took to social media and found some of the most amazing grandparents east of the Cooper. Doris Taylor (Awendaw), submitted by grandson Kyle Taylor “Grandma is one of my favorite people in the world, because she is strong-willed and has a very loving heart for her family. She still cooks full course meals for us, well into her 90s.” Barbara Bush Rogers (Mount Pleasant), submitted by Deedee Malley “We moved into my parents’ house with them three years ago. Dad took early retirement and relocated here from NC in 1990 so he and mom could be daycare for my boys. Now I repay them by caring for them, Mom with Alzheimer’s, and Dad after a couple small strokes. I also pay it forward by being full-time daycare for three of our grandchildren. My parents get extra joy and love from being around their great grands.” Dorris Motley (Mount Pleasant), submitted byMorgan Allen “My grandmother has beaten breast cancer at 93. She’s smart as a whip and has the coolest stories. She is so wise, and everything she says sounds like a philosopher. I love visiting her at Franke at Seaside. Her art is also in the gallery there, and she is who got me into art!” Mount Pleasant’s Favorite Grandparents
