Compensating

“Grandchildren are God’s way of compensating us for growing old.”Mary H. Waldrip

It seemed rather cruel to me that we learned we would be grandparents at about the same time we learned of Jeff’s devastating diagnosis.  We prayed for this moment, hoped for it, dreamed of it.  We are thankful that it did arrive.  Thanks for being with us from then until now.

I hope you have memories of such moments, as a grandparent, as a grandchild, or both!  If so, enjoy some thoughts of them today.

To become a grandparent

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
