Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
Have you imagined how it feels when a parent becomes a grandparent for the first time? The joyous feeling can not be explained in words, but only experienced in the heart and through twinkling eyes bearing tears of happiness. A glittering spark appears in the eyes of the grandparents when they get to see their grandchild for the first time.
Grandparents are amongst the most wonderful relations in the life of every person. They give unconditional love and care to their grandchildren, which never fade with the passage of time. We can feel the warmth and affection of our grandparents when they embrace us. The innate and undying love can be clearly reflected through their eyes. They are the ones who are responsible for passing on wisdom, values, and principles, from generation to generation, to help the youngsters lead a better and more fulfilling life. They are the most wonderful people to make friends with. They are loving they are caring and they are unpretentious. They are there in times of sorrow and they are there in times of happiness.
Grandparents are important to children in so many ways. They have patience and time when parents are often busy. They have stories to tell and interesting games to play. They are also good for treats and spoiling, which we all need from time to time!
The love showered by our grandparents is innate and their mere presence helps in alleviating us. The importance they hold in our lives has given way to a special day set aside exclusively for them - Grandparents Day.
Grandparents Day serves to honor and recognize the contributions of grandparents in our lives. Grandparents are a society and a family's ties to its past as they pass on important values, beliefs and ideals to future generations.
