Growing up without grandparents just wouldn't seem right (and all the grandparents said "amen!").
There's something to be said about the incredible bond between a child and their grandparent. They light up each other's lives in a way that no other can.
As a child, few things made me quite as happy as hearing the words, "Do you want to go see your grandparents?"
You could have given me the option to go to the grandest toy store in the world or see grandparents and I would ALWAYS choose them.
These stunning photos capture the essence of this beautiful bond.
I can't help but smile as I look at these and reminisce on the days where I, too, had the privilege of making these memories.
While some of my grandparents have already passed, I can hold tight to the beautiful memories we made together and I deeply treasure the photos we had together.
Spending time in the kitchen making delicious homemade goodies with my grandmother was always a highlight. She was so patient and thoughtful, never caring about the messes I unintentionally made.
It's because of her loving care and instruction that I now love to teach my own daughter how to be creative in the kitchen.
These are priceless memories that can never be replaced. If you're a grandparent, keep loving your grandchildren. They'll never forget that extra time and attention you showed them and they'll carry your love with them every day of their life.
