Grandparents Day 2009

Grandparents Meet A Need
Grandparents meet a need
That no one else can fill;
They’re always kind and gentle;
They love you and always will.

They have plenty of time to listen,
To encourage and to care;
When others are too busy,
Grandparents are always there.

They have delicious foods;
There’s always something cooking;
They feed you scrumptious tidbits,
When no one else is looking.

They take you special places;
They’re never in a hurry.
They soothe you when you’re troubled,
And help you not to worry.

They buy you things you want,
Even things that you don’t need;
"Do what makes them happy!"
Is every grandparent’s creed.

They focus on your good points,
And overlook each flaw;
How could we do without
Our grandma and grandpa?

Thank you, Grandpa and Grandma,
For giving life a special shine;
I’m glad to have grandparents,
And happy you all are mine!

Harper came into this world with so many people already loving her...especially her grandparents!  We could not ask for any other four people who love her anymore.  To say they are foolish about her is an understatement!  She is so blessed in so many ways...more than she'll ever be able to imagine....and we are so blessed to have her in our lives, and people who love her as much as we do! 
Papa, Granna, Grandad, and Mimi....thank you for all you do for us and our precious baby girl!  It's obvious that she already loves you all to pieces!
Happy Grandparents Day!
We love you!
Brandon, Kara, and Harper

This was truly delightful, thank you for sharing. Yesterday, National Grandparents Day, we have launched Grandchild Connection, a service that strengthens the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Grandchild Connection allows distant grandparents and grandchildren to develop close, meaningful relationships by utilizing today's technology of video conferencing. As part of the "VideoVisit" experience, we coach grandparents in educational and social activities that enhance the bonds they share with their grandchildren, and we provide the tools to achieve that end. We have launched our website today, National Grandparents Day, September 13th, 2009Come visit us @ grandchildconnection dot com
