Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends — and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode
The bonds which are created when a new baby is born extend beyond parent and child. In fact, any grandparent will tell you that the relationships with their grandchildren are among the strongest they have ever experienced. But once parents become grandparents, studies also indicate that the relationship with their grown children improves as well - indicating that building a strong inter-generational connection is one of the best things you can do for your family. National Grandparents Day is a time set aside to recognize how important the older generations are to our legacy, and Grandparents Day flowers are a great way to celebrate. .
