Grandparents

My mother, your grandmother would have been 60 years young today. I'm sorry she didn't live long enough to meet you. She would have been head over heels for you and an amazing grandmother. I find comfort in knowing that she and my dad are watching over us from wherever their spirits may be acting as our guardian angels. Every time I look at you, I see them and I hope you are are able to feel their spirit too. Rest In Peace, Mommy.

This week, we are in the Bay Area visiting your daddy's parents and they give you enough love for four grandparents and then some! They are wonderful to you and you have definitely added an extra twinkle in their eyes. With that in mind, here are some quotes about the beauty, love and importance of grandparents:

"Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting." - Author Unknown

"What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies." - Rudolph Giuliani

"There's no place like home except Grandma's." - Author Unknown

"Grandchildren don't stay young forever, which is good because Pop-pops have only so many horsey rides in them." - Gene Perret

"Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete." - Marcy DeMaree

"Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation." - Lois Wyse

"It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace." - Christopher Morley

"Sometimes our grandmas and grandpas are like grand-angels." - Lexie Saige

"To become a grandparent is to enjoy one of the few pleasures in life for which the consequences have already been paid." - Robert Braul

"If becoming a grandmother was only a matter of choice, I should advise every one of you straight away to become one. There is no fun for old people like it!" - Hannah Whithall Smith

"It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother - that's why the world calls her grandmother." - Author Unknown

"A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do." - Lois Wyse

"Grandparents are there to help the child get into mischief they haven't thought of yet." - Gene Perret

"If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time," you're the grandma." - Teresa Bloomingdale

"Grandparents are similar to a piece of string - handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of their grandchildren." - Author Unknown

"What is it about grandparents that is so lovely? I'd like to say that grandparents are God's gifts to children. And if they can but see, hear and feel what these people have to give, they can mature at a fast rate." - Bill Cosby

"You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was." - Irish Saying

"A grandmother is a mother who has a second chance." - Author Unknown

"No cowboy was ever faster on the draw than a grandparent pulling a baby picture out of a wallet." - Author Unknown

My personal favorite:

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children." - Alex Haley

The best is yet to be.

Lucas is lucky to have one set of grandparents around him. I hope that they become even closer the older he gets. And don't worry, he will know all about our parents. I will make sure of that personally! : )
I enjoyed the grandparent quotes.
