This is my first posting and I am so happy that you are visiting my blog.
About this blog. The themes for my blog are family members and relationships. Each person whether it is the father, mother, siblings, grandparents or great-grandparents play an important roll in the family nucleus.
I will try and post a new blog on a regular basis. Sometimes I will include recipes that everyone will enjoy. Other times I will post a game or two. I want this blog to be both informative and enjoyable. Your comments are welcomed.
Grandparents are Special
There are many articles and
poems written about
Grandparents have many
special names. Bubby and
Zeidi, Grandma and Grandpa,
Saba and Safta
and so the list goes on.
If you look up the word
grandparent in the dictionary,
the definition is ‘one who has
a grandchild’. ‘The parent of
the mother or father’.
To me being a grandparent is one who gives their grandchildren unconditional love, who is ready with open arms and a soft shoulder. A grandparent doesn’t give unsolicited advice or criticism to the grandchild or the parents. Grandparents need to always remember that they raised their children and now that they are parents they must be allowed to raise their children.
A grandparent will sit on the floor with the baby and play with rattles and soft toys.
A grandparent will build magnificent buildings with a toddler, share an imaginary cup of tea, play the same game or read the same story over and over again.
A grandparent will sit at the table and help with a puzzle or maybe just keep the grandchildren company while they color. And in the case of an emergency a grandparent will volunteer to baby-sit.
A grandparent has to know that when the parents says ‘no’ it means‘no’.
A grandparent is filled with joy when the grandchildren come to visit. A grandparent saves and hangs up on the fridge all those special drawings for everyone to see. A grandparent enjoys every special milestone and a grandparent sees each grandchild as a special blessing.
My husband and I have been granted twelve precious grandchildren. I feel truly sorry for grandparents who are so busy with themselves that they deny themselves the true joy of being a grandparent. These grandparents also deny their grandchildren the pleasure of having grandparents.
