In our busy lives of today, we rarely have the opportunity to fully appreciate our family for what they are. Sometimes,
we don't realize it until it is too late.
By spreading a little of the love that was shown to me at a very tender age, I can only hope that I will allow if
even just one child or grandchild to pay a little extra attention to their parent or grandparent. You can learn more from
just one grandparent than you ever could by a thousand books. My hope is to make sure that we embrace our elders while we
still have them here with us. Before you know it, they will not be around to tell the stories of yesterday. That is a waste.
Just remember: Grandparents have seen it all. Don't underestimate their powers of understanding. Don't wait till they
are gone before you realize what you have.
