I am blessed to have known all of my grandparents, and really blessed to have a grandmother who will be 94 in March.
I know I am blessed to have known all four of my natural grandparents, and I am especially blessed to have a grandmother who will be 94 in March, so of course, I couldn’t help but delight in these comments.
It is a light read for your Sunday and we hope it makes you smile; we did!
-Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people’s.
-A grandfather is a man, & a grandmother is a lady!
-Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them
-They are so old they shouldn’t play hard or run.
-It is good if they drive us to the shops and give us money
-When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.
-They show us and talk to us about the colors of the flowers and also why we shouldn’t step on ‘cracks.’
-They don’t say, “Hurry up.”
-Usually grandmothers are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.
-They wear glasses and funny underwear.
-They can take their teeth and gums out.
-Grandparents don’t have to be smart.
-They have to answer questions like “Why isn’t God married?” and “How come dogs chase cats?”
-When they read to us, they don’t skip. They don’t mind if we ask for the same story over again.
-Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.
-They know we should have a snack time before bed time, and they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.
-It’s funny when they bend over; you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.
and finally – Grandma is the smartest woman on Earth. She teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see her enough to get as smart as her.
