Have a Grand Day (May 11)

I had no idea that so many grandmothers were blogging. Honestly. And they have some of the most tried and true ideas ever. Experience goes a long way is the trenches of grandmotherhood. One delightful way that I’ve ‘met’ some wonderful grandmothers is through a link-up party at another blog. We all can link a …

Author Kay Swatkowski writes in the introduction: “During my years spent working in women’s ministry, I constantly heard women affectionately sharing stories like these of the love, support, and prayers of their grandparents and the …

  I am discovering so many wonderful projects to do with the grandchildren. I initially thought I’d post them here one at a time, but I think I would be posting continually! Rather, I plan to post links to some great ideas…that way you’ll only have one post to read but lots of links to …

And how to involve those that might be feeling a bit neglected. The author starts out: “There is all sorts of advice for women about how to age well. …

Monday memories

Such an amazing moment in time. We were blessed with grandsons in 2010, 2011, and 2012. And in 2014, we were blessed with two granddaughters…only a month apart. What a joy to hold those infants together. And how fun that they are all within minutes of each other. Cousins. Growing up together. Oh, the memories …

Volunteer

Live far from your grandchildren? Missing those precious hugs and delightful baby gurgles? Wishing to snuggle? Feeling the urge to read a book to little ones?
