Check it out;
i found it very calming.

MEME pg. 123 line 6,7, & 8

Grandmas defy description. They really do. They occupy such a unique place in the life of a child. They can shed the yoke of responsibilty, relax, and enjoy their grandcildren in a way that was not possible when they were raising their own children. And they can glow in the realization that here is their seed of life that will harvest generations to come.

The Best of Bombeck

When I was a teen, I read Erma Bombeck's columns in the newspaper. She was so funny - and wise. Sadly, she died too young. Yes, grandparents are special! I miss mine still.

Erma had a way to let us laugh at ourselves. I miss her wise insights so much.

This quote really makes me smile. While my HS and College friends are now becoming Grandparents - here I am a Mother for the first time.

They now feel old and I feel like I'm in my 20's again!

Wow that was really sweet about grandmothers. My mom tells me all the time that being a mom is great, but a grandma is better.

Ah thank you, I just spent time with my own little grandson, and I felt this for sure. We can spoil them rotten, then hand them back to Mom and Dad. I did just that, it was so much fun.......

I have a picture on my site of my newest grandbaby.

I wish I could have known either of my grandmothers better. One passed away when my Dad was only one year old and the other when I was eleven. They are precious things.
I hope someday to feel this way.not yet mind though...LOL
I like your blog. i`m going to add it to my links so I can read it :)

I'm not familiar with Erma Bombeck but I am discovering that what she said is very true - my first grandchild was born in April of this year and, in spite of not being all that bothered about being a grandma, I am having a wonderful time with her and making all sorts of plans about what we'll do together when she's older. It wasn't that I didn't want grandchildren,I just didn't feel old enough to be a gran (even though I most certainly am!!) Being a family historian I wanted my family line to continue but just somewere down the road a way. In my head I'm not even really middle aged yet!! In reality I'll be 60 next week.

That's so true. My grandmother was the greatest, the one who always had time to just be with me and do the things I wanted to do. I never felt like anything was more important than me. Thanks for making me think about her today.
