I don’t know why this day always seems to sneak up on us.  I’m not sure when it originated, but I know it wasn’t around when I was a kid.  I think it’s a good idea to honor our golden generation.  In fact I wrote a post about the fourth commandment just a couple days ago.

I am a proud grandparent of three of the most amazing kids on the planet.  They’re no longer babies – 24, 21 and almost 17.  I’ve watched as they grew from little babies to toddlers, elementary aged, middle school, high school and two college men.  I often wonder if I’ll be around for the time they get married and have children.  What a blessing that would be.

The other day I was with the Executive Director of the theatre I’m involved in (Northern Starz Theatre Company) to make a presentation regarding a senior theatre program we are trying to establish.  It was an independent living residence.  I noticed most of the people were quite mobile except for a few with walkers and wheel chairs.  As I looked at them, I thought to myself, this is me.  I’m probably the same age as most of these people and if all goes well I’ll be teaching some of these classes.

I wonder how I was so blessed to watch two generations grow up into really neat people in one lifetime.  As most of us are living longer than our parents did, we most likely will have the opportunity to be great grandparents.

In honor of this day that may be unknown to many, I’m posting some cartoons that will show you why grandparents should be revered.  Wishing all my grandparents a few chuckles to brighten your day.



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. The first grandparent i remember was my maternal parent. His name was Andrew and I now love to draw. The only parent i attended church with was my maternal grandmother. I was blessed to know all four, and have now antiques from high moral inheritance.

  2. Yep, happy grandparents day to you my friend—we reminded ours today when we were up taking them to dinner what today was…but isn’t everyday grandparents day when you’re with them?! 🙂
