GRAND Social link party No. 103 plus an heirloom gift for Mother's Day

Mother's Day heirloom gift

I find it hard to believe, but Mother's Day is already this coming Sunday. If your family has been asking you for gift ideas — or if you ever have a grandparent you plan to honor with a gift — consider this:

Susan Adcox, aka the Grandparent Guide for, has written a lovely book titled "Stories From My Grandparent: An Heirloom Journal For Your Grandchild."

Stories From My Grandparent

Susan kindly gave me a copy to complete for my grandchildren, and I gotta say, this thing is pretty awesome. I've seen many similar journals, and Susan's is the most unique and most extensive yet. The writing prompts include the basics but, more so, there are myriad statements  to elicit responses that ultimately provide grandkids a well-rounded picture of who Grandma or Grandpa really was, is, and still hopes to be.

"Stories From My Grandparent" is beautifully bound — sturdy and spiral bound for opening flat while completing and reading — ensuring it will be a long-lasting heirloom. The book has a suggested price of $18.99 and can be purchased from and other book retailers.

GRAND Social No. 103

Thank you so much for joining this week's GRAND Social link party! I look forward to your posts.

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
