S is for special, we love them so much.


Grandparenting is the stage in life

when you finally understand the true meaning of

the best is yet to come...

because you've reached it

Grandchild's Hand

The promise of tomorrow and the hope of dreams come true,

a reminder of the childhood that's still a part of you.

The wonder of a miracle from which this love began,

there is so much found in the touch

of holding a grandchild's hand.


Side by side, 

or far apart,

my grandparents

are always in my heart!

Grandparents' love, a timeless embrace,

in their hearts, we find our space.

With every laugh, with every tear,

their love shines bright, year after year.
