One of the Most Important Things I Do as, "grandma"!

We are about a third of the way through the month of July; it won't be long and it will be
August! This is one of my favorite times of the year! Why, you ask??? Because all the, "back-to-school" sales will be starting!

You may wonder why this is one of my favorite times of the year; especially since I'm a grandma. The reason is because of the word, "sales"! I LOVE back-to-school sales! It is the absolutely best time of year to stock up on important supplies . . . crayons (we can often find them for as low as 25 cents a box!!!!), water paints, markers, chalk, colored pencils, glue sticks, pencils, etc.!!! Of course, being grandma, I want to have a well-stocked supply of these, "essentials"!

There is another reason why this is one of my favorite times of the year; since these great supplies are priced so low, it makes them excellent items for my grandsons to buy to give to others who are in need! Most communities have places where you can drop off backpacks filled with school supplies which they then give to children in need. Most churches and community centers use these types of supplies as well, so having your grandchildren go shopping for supplies which they can give to help others is an excellent way to help them think about and serve others!

While I love spending time with my grandsons doing things together which show my love for them, I do believe one of the best ways to show my love for them is to help them develop tender hearts so they grow up to be men who care about and serve others. This may very well be one of the most important things I do as grandma for my grandsons!

So, I'm going to have a few, "chores" which the boys can do at my house to earn money and they we will go shopping for school supplies which they can then give to those in need! 

What do you do to help your grandchildren develop, "tender hearts"?
