There is something amazing about the bond between parents and their children. But the relationship between grandchildren and grandparents is equally as special in its own right. Just as there are certain things only a grandpa can teach, there are also things that only a grandma knows as well. Perhaps it’s because grandmas have the unique capability of combining wisdom and experience with a mother’s love. Read on to discover the lessons only a grandma can teach.
Hugs are the best medicine
Sure, moms and dads undoubtedly give great hugs just when they’re children need them, but hugs from Grandma are always extra special. Maybe it’s because a grandma’s hugs aren’t as common, so the familiar squeeze is always coated in extra warmth and goodness. Whatever the reason is, there are few things in life better than a big, warm hug from Grandma. Whether it’s a “welcome back” hug, an “I hope you feel better” hug, or a “have a good day” hug, grandmas give the best ones every single time.
It’s the little things that count
Every grandma has her signature specialty whether it’s homemade cookies, refreshing iced tea, or a handwritten note. Grandmas have a special way of bringing great joys out of the littlest things. And sometimes an old-fashioned reminder of the simple things in life are just what everyone needs to keep themselves grounded in today’s society.
Always be your best self
Grandma’s have a way of always being their best self without showing off. Whether it’s looking your best, feeling your best, or acting your best, grandmas not only seem to have perfected this skill, but they also are more than willing to teach their ways to their grandkids. While parents do a great job at encouraging their children to reach their potential, there is something to be said for the way grandmas can teach their grandchildren to carry themselves through life with poise.
No role can ever replace the job of a parent, but grandmas have a special talent for teaching their grandchildren certain lessons with unconditional love and grace.
