…and watching the two of them is like watching little kids play. “Come over here grandma and sit next to me”. Grandma gets up shuffles over and sits. “Now let’s read stories grandma, but you read”. Grandma picks up the book and proceeds to read, as he watched totally transfixed as she animated what she is reading. The conversations that takes place between them, is impregnated with years wisdom and knowledge and wrapped in love.
It is a blessing for a one to live long enough to see his/ her grandchildren, interact with them and share life lessons with them.
The love and warmth of grandparents can be likened to that of a security blanket; all trusting and knowing what to do. I love seeing my parents with their grandchildren, the joy and pleasure it brings to them can never be bought or sold. Equally the joy the children radiate when they are with their grandparents, is absolutely heart warming.
Today, I am thankful for grandparents. I am thankful for their selfless love, care and tower of support. I am thankful for their endless hours of babysitting; always willing to step in at the last minute. I am thankful for the rich wisdom the grandkids get to glean from them. I pray my gratitude is accepted in your presence today and always.
Now, over to you dear readers, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL TO GOD FOR TODAY?
