Are you planning to spend extra time with your grandchildren this Summer? Do you have dates set aside to go visit them, or have them come visit you? While Summer holds may special blessings; typically warmer weather, the growth of fresh produce, the blooming of lovely flowers, etc. . . it also is often a time to be able to spend special time with grandchildren.

When my grandsons were young, they loved to play hide-and-seek . . . did I say "loved"??? No, it is more like they "LOVED" to play hide-and-seek! They loved hiding and then they loved being found, but I think it was the "being found" part they loved the most, because they typically ended up telling us where they were "hiding"! They said things like, "I'm going to hide under the table and you can count, then come and find me!" Or, when we finished counting and said; "Ready or not, here we come, oh where oh where could you be?", they typically told us; "I'm in the closet!" or "I'm under the table!" or wherever they were. Plus, if we took too "long" to "find" them, they typically made little sounds . . . to "help" us find them! Then when we found them, they often laughed, gave hugs and we did it all over again . . . and again . . . and again! Did I mention they "LOVED" playing hide and seek??!!!

We know our eyes speak volumes - we certainly see this when our grandchildren smile with their eyes twinkling or if they are angry it often shows in their eyes. Our love for our grandchildren is something which they are able to see in our eyes - as well as if we are angry or sad about something as well. Our eyes are a powerful way to communicate with our grandchildren - we need to think about this as we interact with them.

This quote reminds me of my grandsons. They have recently discovered the "joy" of "hangouts". In case you do not yet know what this is, it is a way they are able to call you through google accounts and actually see you while they talk to you - or just use it to send you messages.
One day, a few years ago, when I asked my grandsons what my "job" as grandma was, they said for me to give hugs, snuggles, kisses, and to make lots of cookies! While this makes us smile - at least it makes me smile - it is also true. These things are all about giving love and when it comes to the "role" of grandma, one extremely important part is to be the person my grandsons are absolutely able to depend upon throughout their lives to be generous in giving and showing love to them.

For the past couple days I've been talking about the "role" of the grandma, and the grandpa, too. I believe we need to be students of our grandchildren and know what makes them "tick". I believe we need to be mirrors who reflect a positive view to our grandchildren of who they are; loved gifts from the hand of God!
