A Grandmother’s Love

As children, we can’t comprehend or fully realize the meaning of a grandmother’s love. How wise she is, how much patience she has, or how much guidance she gives us by her example and by her helpful caring ways. Years go by before we know and understand the depth of her concern and the love in her protectiveness. But as we mature we do finally understand and we can look back and see through older eyes and wiser hearts her unconditional love, devotion, and family loyalty. It’s these and many other things that make us realize how lucky we have been and how lucky we are to have this amazing woman – our grandmother – as the centered root of strength and love in our life.  ~Author: Karen Mortensen


When reflecting upon treasured memories of my grandchildren:
(I may do one or ALL these things…)

  • Read stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Grandmothers (edition)
  • Call to talk to them and tell them how much I love them!
  • Pull out old cards and photos they wrote and drew/colored
  • Reminisce through the movies and television favorites we watched
  • Think back to the joy we had of playing cards and boardgames
  • The quality time making arts & crafts while we laughed and giggled
  • Conjure thoughts of baking cookies and other pastries together
  • Thoughts of fun playing yard games, camping, and swinging at the park
  • Playing Barbies, playing house, playing with make-up, and fixing our hair
  • Look through a mass collection of photos of time spent with each child
  • Thumb through the coloring books/pages and drawings we created together



“The moment a grandchild is born, a grandmother is born too. This collection is full of stories by grandmothers about being a grandmother, and grandchildren about their grandmothers. Personal stories about legacies and traditions, grandma’s wisdom and lessons from grandchildren as well as the joys and challenges of grandparenting, will touch the heart and tickle the funny bone of all grandmothers.”
