More About Grandchildren and Grandparents

Sometimes grandparents and grandchildren can add so much to our lives. Here are some precious quotes from grandchildren:

A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like.

"In the winter, we used to skate outside on a pond. In the summer, we had a swing made from an automobile tire. My dad, who was your great grandfather, hung it from a tree in our back yard."

We also rode our own pony and picked wild raspberries in the woods in the late summer and fall."

The little granddaughter, wide-eyed in near astonishment, was taking all of this in. Finally she said to her grandmother, "Grandma, I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

Grandson's First Funeral:

A five-year-old boy was attending his first funeral, which was for the burial of his maternal grandfather. It was a Catholic service in a church, and the priest was up in front of the congregation explaining what happens to one’s soul after death.

After taking it all in for awhile, the young grandson pulled on his father’s pants leg, pointed at the priest and asked, "Dad, is that God?"
