Show Up for your Grandchildren
Grandchildren bring so much happiness to our lives, it's indescribable. We take every opportunity to be with them, we don't want to take our kids place in raising them, we just want to add to the happiness by showing up. Show up in their lives, be present, stay involved. The payoffs are going to be immeasurable. They are our legacy. Grandparent well.
