Time

Grandparents have time for grandkids.

 The world seems to have less and less time everyyear. Maybe time stands still for grandchildren and grandparents. Make time for yourgrandchildren. Your attention may be the largest block of time they have all week.

Grandparenting

The Value of Time for Grandparents and Grandchildren.

Barbara Wolf

Maybe time stands still for grandchildren and grandparents.

Time-There is never enough!

Have you ever watched your children "scurry" around. They seem to have so much less time than we did when our families were young.

I was thinking about that one week-end as I watched my son and his wife clean house, take care of the yard, be parents, be consumers, and be husband and wife.

Nothing was really neglected but nothing was given a large block of time, including the children.

The next week I had the following in my email from a friend:

Time

To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who failed a final exam.

To realize the value of one month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour: Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute: Ask the person who has missed the plane.

To realize the value of one second: Ask a person who has just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond: Ask the person who has just won a silver medal in the Olympics.

In a world where time is of great scarcity, it seems that grandparents, now even more than in the past, have time for children that no one else has.

Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure time even more when you share it with your grandchildren. And they will have something that very few children can acquire now: someone else’s time.
