This is something I spoke at my church for Grandparent’s Day in 2015. It is based upon a blog post I found in my research for the subject.
Grandparents are a blessing. They are also the “little foxes” that like to spoil the “vine” of our children, too. It is humorous to watch grandparents. What was once a colossal “no-no” to us as their children is cute and adorable with their grandchildren.
My children’s grandparents hand out more money than I remember my parents ever doing. I can remember how hard it was as a child to get a quarter to buy some candy or a trinket toy from the front of a restaurant. But now, those same hands seem to rain dollar bills like the Sunday School Candy Rains of years past.
