I would love to have a grandpa like you! One of my grandpas (my mom’s dad) used to rock me to sleep when I was a kid but he passed away when I was very young. My other grandpa didn’t really show his affection much. I know he loved us but he never really showed it. I only have little memories of the both of them.

I live abroad now and every time I go home, I would hang with my grandmother. Take her to lunch or dinner and grocery shopping. I hope your grandkids realise how lovely it is that you want to hang with them. I wish I could hang with my grandpas a little more often.

Thank you for sharing your story.
