Where would we be without grandparents? Don't forget Grandparents Day September 12th:

To become a grandparent is to enjoy one of the few pleasures in life for which the consequences have already been paid. ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H. Waldrip

Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap. ~Doug Larson

Grandparents are there to help the child get into mischief they haven't thought of yet. ~Gene Perret

A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart. ~Author Unknown

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden. ~Attributed to Claudia Ghandi

A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do. ~Lois Wyse

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu

No cowboy was ever faster on the draw than a grandparent pulling a baby picture out of a wallet. ~Author Unknown

To a small child, the perfect granddad is unafraid of big dogs and fierce storms but absolutely terrified of the word "boo." ~Robert Brault

Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother. ~Edward H. Dreschnack

I didn't know at all one of my grandmothers, though I think I would have liked her from family stories. Her husband I only barely knew as he died when I was super young. My other grandfather died shortly thereafter...he was my buddy. The grandmother that lived the longest was hard to be close with. Though I agree grandparents should be a part of a child's life; mine really weren't.
