Grandparent's Day

Friday's Grand Connection Fun

Grandparent's Day is this Sunday (September 12, 2010). I hope that it is celebrated where you live and that you'll be able to spend some special time with your grandchildren!

This weekend may be a perfect opportunity for us to go through the old scrapbooks, looking for pictures of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers. We might want to scan the pictures and make a "grandmother collage" that we could give to our grandchildren. And if grandchildren live nearby, it would be such fun to do this together!

Now is also a good time for us to thank God for the gift of grandchildren. The older I get the more I appreciate the meaning of Proverbs 17:6: "Children's children are a crown to the aged" and understand why poet Nora Hetrick says that grandparents "sprinkle stardust."

Now, if you don't mind a tear coming to your eye, click on this video from grandparents.com. I just watched it and it is wonderful: http://www.grandparents.com/gpday2009/index.html

Happy Grandparents Day,
