Grandparent to Grandparent

Tiger goes online

Tiger looks like he is surfing the internet. Why not ? He watches me  go online so much that he probably wants to see if there's any  chats for cats. Well, Tiger can help me contribute to Orange you glad it's Friday. :-) He looks orange to me, but anyway, back to the heart of the issue...

Blessings to Mariolina and her family.

While posting this this weekend my heart goes out to Mariolina and her New York family. Her maternal grandmother has gone on to be with the Lord and she is visiting her family there to support them and join with them and bidding their fond adieu. A part of Mari is forever changed because of the huge impact her grandmother had on her. She brought her to the U.S. as a small child and she has remained very close to her until she left us. Her Grandmother was a strong influence in her life, and all us grandparents should strive to be like her; loving, supportive, nurturing, and teaching.

Before Mariolina came to Michigan to marry my baby boy, we would talk on the phone sometimes and she would mention that she was getting ready to go to her grandmother's home to braid her hair and hang out with her then spend the night. There was a special bond that will always be there, which time never removes. 

The following quotes are in honor of grandparents:

"Maternal spirit overflows and fills the world with love." ~ German saying


"That's what I consider true generosity. You give your all and yet you feel as if it costs you nothing."~ Simone de Beauvoir


"Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered by anybody to this country and to mankind is to bring up a family." ~ George Bernard Shaw


"One Grandmother will spoil a baby. Two working together will bring him up in the way he should go, for each will suspect the other of spoiling him and will check it." ~ William Allen White


"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." ~ John H. Whitehead
