National Grandparents Day is coming up on Sunday, Sept. 13, so Huff/Post 50 decided to take a moment to celebrate the incredible contributions grandparents have made to our lives.
We asked you to tell us about your own grandparents -- and your own grandchildren. We were inundated with inspiring stories. Featured below are just 25 of those amazing grandparents. On Friday, Sept. 11, we'll publish stories from grandparents gushing about their grandkids. From what we've seen, grandparents aren't ready for the sidelines. They want to be -- and are -- active, engaged, involved and appreciated.
Happy Grandparents Day everyone!
