"I stand here today - in the shadow of my parents' and grandparents' accomplishments - because of their willingness to sacrifice and look to my future". By David Ige
Grandparents are the foundation of our families. They are like a support system our families, so it is important that we appreciate them. Cherishing your grandparents is something that all people know that they should do but sometimes they need a reminder about this. Now a days it’s a common trend that parents usually live separate from grandparents... Only few families are left that are living with their grandparents. Some of the nuclear families may have a visit to grandparents’ house with their children only in holidays. We all have different kind of memories about visiting to our grandparent’s house like our grandmother cook us our favorite food. With the increasing technology and globalization all are so busy that seldom we have any time to meet our grandparents or if they are living with us we don’t have much time that we could just sit with them for a few minutes and talk to them, cherish them. We all know that birth and death are uncertain. Future is uncertain we cannot predict what is going to happen in future. You never know when time will run out and all you have left is memories. So, stop being busy all the time and spend some time for your grandparents. Trust me, if you spend few time with them in the whole day, they will definitely love it. And your grandparents will be very happy. It is never too late to show your grandparents love and appreciation.Spend time with your grandparents doing small things every day. Don’t wait for the holidays to come, make time from your busy schedule. Your grandparents have years of experience about life .whenever you need help they will give you best advices. In return they want nothing just your love and attention. It is common among youngsters that they get irritated easily whenever they ask for something. Don’t get irritated just listen to them calmly. Ask them how they are and show your concern for them. Never walk away or ignore when they are talking to you. After all one day you also will become grandparents and you will not like to be ignored by your grandchildren’s nor will you like to stay alone. So, treat your grandparents like the way you want yourself to be treated by your grandchildren’s.
