What a lovely article. Grandparents have so much to offer - after all, our age group has the advantage of having been young and therefore understand much of what the young think and feel. We also have more time than many parents, so we can use that time to play, listen to and support the next generation. My Nana was good fun to be with and I remember her fondly. I hope my grandsons see me in the same light as they grow up. Currently I play with them, write letters, silly poems and short stories for them and see them as much as possible. Hopefully they see me in the same affectionate light as I saw my grandmother.
