The true meaning of ‘grand’-child
Among all the hectic lives of young people today, lives one special lady who has mastered the meaning of “grand”-child. With societal pressures, texting, Facebooking and job hunting, it’s uncommon in our world, today, to find good old-fashioned family love and support of a youth.
With never a complaint whispered, Amanda Crawford gladly aids her grandmother in her daily activities. She puts her grandmother first, and her own needs follow far behind. It’s not often that a grandmother today gets to experience the gratitude and pleasure of such a thoughtful grandchild.
Providing a loyal companion, a loving rescue cat named Angel, to Grandma Genny is one of the many special gifts Amanda gave her Gram.
As a friend and observer, I hope that many more can learn from Amanda’s generosity and love for her grandmother.
An immense amount of knowledge can be gained from our elders. Take the time to sit and listen while your loved ones are still with you.The stories are sure to enlighten you. You’ll be captivated by life lessons learned nowhere else. These are experiences you cannot learn anywhere but by their side.
Appreciate all that is yours while it is here. Live with no regrets. Experience the gratitude.
Family gives thanks
