The Top Five Ways to Show Love to My Grandchildren . . . #4 - Pay Attention!

Showing love to our sweet grandchildren may come naturally to us, but this week I I'm sharing my Top Five Ways to Show Love to My Grandchildren . . . and today I'm sharing my #4 . . . 
  • Give them my full attention. 
In this day of the personal smart phone, it is far too easy for adults to be caught up in what is happening on their facebook, with their email or just on-line. When my grandchildren are around I am sure to put aside what I'm doing - unless I truly can not and then do so as soon as possible - to listen to what my grandsons want to tell me. I want them to know I am interested in the things they are interested in and want to hear whatever it is they want to tell me. True, many of these things are not "earth-shattering", but if my grandsons want to tell me something, I want to listen.


While I do not want my grandsons to grow up to be rude or to think it is okay for them to interrupt conversations, I want them to know their grandma absolutely, most certainly loves them. I give them my attention and listen to them! 

What do you do to show your love to your grandchildren?
