Quote for 2/16/09

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children."
Alex Haley

I hope I can make this a somewhat true statement.

You'll do just fine!
I had never read this quote until Christmas. JuJu had a calendar made for PD and I with pics of the grandkids and this quote was featured on the front of the calendar. It touched me, deeply. It sounds magical somehow and there is definitely magic involved with those little ones and their grandparents.

Wink,
I know I'll do fine. I've had some great teachers in this respect. My father did fine. My brother is doing fine. I think the odds are on my side.
It is a beautiful quote. And I think it reflects very well the sort of magical relationship that exists between grandparents and grandkids. I can't wait to experience that in all it's fullness.
