I am passionate about multi-generational relationships.
We are lucky to live in the same city as four grandparents…Poppy, GG, Nanny and Grampie enrich our lives daily.
My husband’s grandmother lived to 106! This meant our young children had the rare opportunity to form meaningful memories with their Great-Nanny.
However, my journey started with my relationships with my own grandparents, especially my Grandma Shreenan. It was her most challenging years that impacted me the most. I remember the ginger snaps she made and the mittens she knitted when I was young. I cherish the stories of her own childhood when her dementia progressed making these reflections the easiest of conversations. I was privileged to hold her hand when she passed away three days before our wedding. This time in my early adulthood had a lasting impact.
It led me to eldercare where I have benefited from many more meaningful relationships with older adults. I have seen first hand how every touch point affects quality of life and how we connect with each other by sharing our stories. I have also learned that older adulthood is a time to be honoured and appreciated.
Today, firmly rooted in motherhood, I have a deeper appreciation for the sacrifices that the mothers and grandmothers in my life have made. My own mom is the best you could ask for...full of love and laughter and always my biggest fan no matter my endeavor (including starting Sunberry Box)!
I want to make it easy for you to express appreciation, stay connected, and spread joy. After all, that is all our mothers and grandmothers really want from us.
Wishing joy to you and those you love!
