Ahhhh, Grandmothers—the bearers of unlimited snuggles, tales full of laughter, and sneaky treats that mom and dad would never let you have on a Saturday morning. Grandmothers are also the ones with unlimited patience, wisdom, and guidance that they share so freely as we grow. But one of the most important things they give us is time. Focused, steady, un-rushed time.
Grandmothers are one of the greatest treasures we as humans could ever be given. They are able to slow down and not race against the clock which lends to some very special time with their grandbabies. Much of what we learn about life and love comes from them, even as we grow older.
