Apparently today is grandparents day...a day set aside to honour one's grandparents. I'm thinking it is also a good day to relish the honour of being a grandparent.
Children's children are a crown to the aged...
Grandchildren are a delight...and they have much to teach us.
Emme and Spencer brought a friend across the fields last week to pay Grammy a visit. I was touched by the care they showed for their friend...who had an encounter with a bee as they walked across the field. Emme knew from experience the pain of bee stings...and was most empathetic. Showing compassion and caring about each other's hurts...that's what friendship is all about. Sometimes we need a reminder to look out for the needs and hurts of those around us.
They have a way of making us laugh...and reminding us what it is like to be carefree and innocent. Ryder and Ranen had no worries as they rolled about in a parking lot recently...they were trusting their parents to keep them safe. Oh to live a life that is so free of concern!
We have learned much from our four precious grandchildren...and I think being a Grammy is one of life's greatest blessings!
