I’d like to think that the greatest gifts my husband and I have ever given our parents are in the form of two precious beings who they lovingly call their grandchildren. I can’t help but wonder if becoming a grandparent allows our parents to relive the magic they felt when they first laid eyes on us. It’s no wonder their eyes light up each time they see a beloved grandchild.
In celebration of Grandparents Day, I wanted to share some quotes about grandparents. Most often it is the grandparents who think they are the lucky ones, but us parents are pretty lucky ourselves. We get to watch the eyes of our parents light up as they hold our babies and reminisce about the days when we were small. And we get to see the excitement that graces our children’s faces when we tell them we are going to visit their grandparents.
Oftentimes, our parents give us the gift of life. If we are fortunate, they help prepare us for adulthood and love us all the way up to it and each day after. And then one day, we give them a gift too — the gift of grandchildren and a chance to impart some magic into the next generation. Take a look at 12 sweet quotes just in time for Grandparents Day:
