A Special Resource

IMG_20130227_182553IMG_20130227_182531 (1)Grandparents are a valuable resource that is often over-looked.

These special people have already travelled much of life’s pathways and can share so much of it with us.

They can reminisce and bring the past back to life for us. We can also be entertained with real life stories that are our heritage.

Sometimes, as parents seem so busy and preoccupied, grandparents can fill an empty void in their grandchildren’s lives.

If your children or you don’t have any grandparents, there are homes called Senior Citizen Care Homes that are full of them! Check them out.

One Christmas season I bought some pretty little broches and wrapped them up. I took my young daughter and drove to a local care home. We walked down the hall and just picked someone out and gave them the broch. Then we visited the souls there. You should have seen the sparkle those small gifts and our time brought to many faces…not only their faces but ours as well.
