Sometimes in my job, a service we have will remind me of a friend or family member. I had one a couple weeks ago that reminded me of my Grandparents. I found a poem about grandparents and thought I would share the poem with some photos I have.

What are Grandparents made of?
Hope and pride, pure joy inside
Warm Hugs and kisses, shooting star wishes
Tickles and fun, a sprinkle of sun
Hands to hold, hearts of gold...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Tales from the past, memories to last
Laps for reading. “I love you” greetings
Wisdom to teach, always in reach
Toys galore, eyes that adore...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Patience and time, trees to climb
Baby photos in frames, childhood games
Bragging rights, sleep over nights
Comforting arms, magical charms...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Kindness and care, affection to share
Heart-to-heart talks, unhurried walks
Faith and trust, spoiling a must
Endless love, a gift from above...

That’s what Grandparents are made of
