Grandparent on Purpose - It Matters!

As grandparents we know something important which parents do not know. We know children grow up so very fast. At the time when we were "knee-deep" in potty-training, getting children to school and the day-in-day-out busyness of life with children, it did not seem like they were growing up so very fast. In fact, there were times we may have wondered if they were ever going to grow up.

But, looking back we know how vary fast they actually grew up. We are now able to see those years flew by. And, added to this we know there are likely more days behind us than there are in front of us - we are not getting any younger. Our grandchildren are growing up and we are getting older, so it truly matters for us to make the most of the time we have with our grandchildren. We need to grandparent on purpose.

As the weekend is upon us, let's make time to connect with our grandchildren on purpose - no matter their age or location. Clearly, if they live near it is easier to do this, but even if they live far with facetime, email and even just a phone we are able to connect. Consider the following ideas . . .
