Celebrating Grandparents

Posted by Samantha on October 6, 2012 in Connection, Hope, Love, Materialism, Relationships, Thought for the day |

This Sunday is Grandparents Day.

I’d like to share some of my longing for that day.

I long for a day when all grandparents receive appreciation for an important job, sincerely undertaken, on a daily basis.

I long for the day when we share our appreciation of grandparents from a place of true honesty rather than a place of obligation.

I long for a day when all grandchildren experience the nurturing that comes from a meaningful relationship with a loving and present grandparent.

I long for a day when all grandparents step up to the challenge of being a loving presence in the lives of their grandchildren.

I long for a day when our older generation swap some of their holidays and coffee mornings for time with their grandchildren that doesn’t involve theme parks and presents. If they need help to learn how to do that, I want us to support them while they learn it.

I long for a day when grandparents recognise the depth of love that their grandchildren have for them when they are little and to receive this in deep recognition and appreciation of their contribution as grandparents.

I hope that this weekend we might take a little step closer to this vision of grandparents and their grandchildren.
