The Gift of Grandparents
One of the biggest blessings you can have in life is grandparents. Few people take the time to learn from those who raised their parents. Being in consistent relationship with your grandparents can add so many good things to your life.
For starters, you should get to know your grandparents because they are a part of your family. Your grandparents are the ones who had and raised your parents to be the kind of people that have raised and loved you. Think about all the hard work your grandparents put in to raising their children.
Think about the wealth of knowledge that your grandparents have. They have lived many years and have seen the world change in many ways. The next time you have a free afternoon set a time to enjoy a coffee or a lemonade with your grandparents. Ask them about their lives and the things they have learned. You’ll be amazed how much practical life advice comes from grandparents.
Having a relationship with your grandparents can be really fun. Many are much more relaxed than parents and so they often will spend more time, energy and money on things that your parents would never agree to. Everyone knows that a visit to their grandparents house means staying up later and playing more games than you ever play at home.
Many grandparents love to spend time with their grandchildren but are just unsure of how to initiate the relationship. Make an effort to go out of your way and maybe even your comfort zone and get to know them. They will be delighted to get to know you. You’ll never regret the time and effort you put into spending time with your grandparents.
