What’s the Big Deal About Being a Grandparent?

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:1

It’s hard to explain, but I’m going to give it my best shot. I’m sure some of this will sound like the ramblings of an old man.

As Mary and I look back at our lives our greatest joys have been our children. The blessings we’ve received because of them are countless. They are truly a blessing from God. The memories we have tucked away are what we hope and pray our children get to experience with their own children someday. All the fun we’ve had together, all the laughs we’ve shared, even all the bad times are treasured and now we get to relive many of our greatest moments as they go through some of the same moments we did as new parents. Maybe in an odd way being a grandparent has made us a little younger?

In this little bundle of joy the whole cycle begins again. It truly is amazing how such a little girl can fill the hearts of so many. Jason, Nicole and Leah have a lifetime of making memories ahead of them. We just can’t wait to share in those memories.
