My 85 year old grandma is surprisingly a ally

So I was chatting with my mom and I asked her if my grandma knows about gay people to which my mom said “Oh yeah she loves the gays” (keep in mind my grandma only knows Spanish so my mom translates) and after a bit of back and forth my mom said that: “She loves and respects them. She’s the one who told me to be supportive of them” and I asked if she’d take me to a pride parade and she said “I would but junes over”

I just love how this helps break the stereotypes of older people being homophobes or racists

I bought my cousin an early birthday gift because he needed to feel that someone cares...

So, I'm in the middle of planning my wedding and we're way over budget. So, I have money concerns. My cousin has always been there for me and everyone and he spent 10 years of his life taking care of his father and now he's forced to take care of his mother (who's not a nice person). I let him calla and vent. Anyway, his birthday is in September and we dont' normally exchange gifts. However, I knew that he wanted this limited edition Deadpool item. So, I bought it for him early. He was so touched.

I smiled about this (presumably) guy setting up a Age of Empires 2 Match called "Dad this one" to play with his father against 4 AI-opponents. What a nice thing to do. Hilarious and bittersweet and heartwarming. You can feel there are stories behind this. Go Earl!

Was browsing my passed Grandmother’s Facebook and she linked with Bill Paxton

Not even sure this is necessarily wholesome, but it’s not a gif/vid and it put a smile on my face. Loved him in Weird Science and Twister lol

She said she got some new Funko’s, but woah! They’re custom!!!

I open Snapchat to see she got custom Funkos!!!

She used to collect them in college but I didn’t even know this was something that could be done. Really sweet of her.
