I wrote this post in 2018 after my granddaughter was born. Now she is almost 4 and there have been 2 more grandchildren born. Unfortunately, those 2 grandchildren were only able to be with us on this earth for a very short time. While they were here, I fell deeply in love with them, as I have each of my grandchildren. Being separated from them for a time has been so difficult and watching my daughter and her family mourn their loss makes it even harder. Thankfully, because of the hope we have in Jesus Christ, we know that our family is eternal and that He can heal our hearts and that we will one day all be together again. As a grandmother, I look so forward to having all of my grandchildren around me and on my lap once again. I love them all so much and I miss them when we are apart. Here is the post expressing some of the things that I adore about being a grandma. At the end, I will add photos of numbers 11 and 12, Elodie and Henry.
I mentioned on a post earlier this week that I became a grandmother for the 10th time! That is her right there, beautiful little Amelia! Since the 9th of September is Grandparent's Day, I thought today's Friday Faves should have a special twist in honor of that and that I will share what I love about being a grandmother. If you are a grandmother, be sure to share what you love about it in the comments below. I also got some great ideas from some other grandmas I know! As you read, I will show you photos of my beautiful grandchildren!
"There is nothing like a grandchild to put a smile on your face, a lump in your throat and a warm feeling in your heart."
"Being a parent is the most important job in the world. Being a grandparent is the most fun!"
"Some of our greatest blessings call us Grandma and Grandpa."
"Grandchildren are like snowflakes, each one is beautifully unique."
My family is my treasure and these grandchildren are so precious to me. My husband and I are so blessed with this family of ours! Be sure to tell the grandparents in your life what a blessing they are to you and enjoy those grandchildren of your own! They get big so fast!
