Tomorrow, Sunday,¬†September 9th ¬†is Grandparents Day. A fairly recently added holiday celebrating all of us that are lucky enough to have a “second chance” with the children of our offspring that turned out to be better parents than we were. At least that is true for most of us.

My children have taught me so much about love, family and joy. As a grandmother I don’t need a special day because for me having nine loving grand children fuels my soul, makes me laugh and dance and get lots of hugs and kisses and fun with all of them.

For those of you that need a special pat on the back you deserve that day. I know how hard it has been for many first time grand parents to watch a child-their first grand child for a full day. You are exhausted! Then when they learn a second child is on it’s way after being so happy you then realize how will you watch 2 children or 3 or…you get the idea.

Laugh a lot is my advice. Share your stories funny and sad. Offer up your mistakes as learning’s for other new grandparents and be proud that you have these lovely little people in your life. Even if some live far away you know your love just grows so large in your chest you explode with pride and praise and lots of pictures of your grand children. Share. Share. Share.
