That Nanas Know
When we have children we get to rediscover the world through their eyes. To be able to experience that again through grandchildren is one of life’s greatest blessings.
I like to think that the love our children have for their children is a compilation of love passed down from previous generations that will continue on through my grandchildren to future generations.
It’s the music that makes a grandparent’s heart sing.
but often in the back of my mind was the voice that whispered “You need to be cleaning,working, etc.” When I play with my grandchildren now that voice is silent.
Grandchild number 8 is just as loved and precious as the first one was. Each child is unique and a blessing to a grandparent’s heart.
In a society that worships the young and skinny, the older and not so skinny citizens are often ignored. Wrinkles and gray hair don’t matter to a grandchild. They have the ability to look past all physical attributes and peer straight into our hearts.
If it weren’t for my grandchildren I wouldn’t dance with Micky Mouse or sing with Elmo. Play is fun but sometimes adults forget to play. Grandchildren remind us that even something as simple as bubble wrap can be fun!
In a world that seems often dark and hopeless they bring joy and light. The future belongs to them and I have faith that they can and will make the world a better place.
Watch children play together and see how quick they are to forgive and forget. What if adults could do the same? What a better world it would be!
Just when you think you have experienced all the different kinds of love the world has to offer you become a grandparent and realize there is yet one more ….and like God said after seeing all that he had made, “It is very good.”
