It’s not too late to visit Grandma, Mee Maw or Granny to tell her you’re thinking about her.
It’s not too late to make a phone call and send Papa or Gramps a hug over the phone lines.
I know people sometimes argue that special designated days like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparents Day are irrelevant when we should all be appreciative and loving of Mom or Dad or Grandma everyday.
But these family roles are so important that I believe we can’t laud them enough, appreciate and celebrate them enough.
So take the time to honor your grandparents. Many have invested much in their families and are now looking to see some of that time, energy and love come to fruition in the next generation.
Teach your children the value of respecting and appreciating the older adults who were paving the way for them long before they were even thought of.
The payoff is huge.
One day, if you are lucky, you’ll be a grandparent too.
P.S. Maybe you’re already a grandparent. If so, happy Grandparents Day!
