For all those grannies and granddads across the world who dote on their grandkids and enrich their lives forever.
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television.
My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me, and I decided to teach her to sew. After I had gone through a lengthy explanation of how to thread the machine, she stepped back, put her hands on her hips, and said in disbelief, “You mean you can do all that, but you can’t play my Game Boy?”
The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children’s children. It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future.

Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies.
A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart.
It’s such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother — that’s why the world calls her grandmother.
My grandchild has taught me what true love means. It means watching Scooby-Doo cartoons while the basketball game is on another channel.
