We take for granted that we will have our grandparents around for many years to come, but I see them both slowing down so much over the last few years. They were a bright active, traveling couple when I first met them. I forget that that was over 18 years ago.
I am so glad my son is enjoying the time he has with them and my parents. I was fortunate that he got to be with my grandparents when they were in their 90's. Sadly, he was so little that he doesn't really remember Grandmother Lois but I am glad that he remembers Pappy.
Take time with them while you have them. Parents and Grandparents are a real blessing in our lives.
