Happy Grandparents Day to all the grandparents.

We owe a lot to our grandparents. They have the warmth of a parent; the wisdom of the sages; and the heart of a child. An unknown author quotes: "Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting." Don't waste any opportunity to shower your grandparents with love. You just never know. Here are some wonderful grandparent quotes to remind us of these unsung heroes:

Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.

The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.

Grandparents are there to help the child get into mischief they haven't thought of yet.

A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart.

A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.

I have so many wonderful memories with both sets of my grandparents. Granny and Grandpa and Meme. I hold on to all of those memories and now cherish them since they are no longer with us. I can only hope that my boys will have has many cherished memories as I do.
