13 Surprising Facts About Grandparents
I remember …
Times have changed but they will never be forgotten. With nostalgia for the good old days when my family lived close to one another, I jotted down an important childhood memory. Why important? Because it showed and taught me how a family should interact. I will never be able to follow in the role of my grandmother, the Queen Bee, because my grandchildren live long distances away. They range from Texas, New York, California, to Arizona. The memory is for me and to this day I feel a joyfulness when I think back in time.
I know that many of you are in the same boat. Our family floats here and there adrift, without an anchor. I dare say that many young and older lives would turn out differently if there had been the opportunity for continuous close family bonding.
Since becoming a grandmother, I have had a love-hate relationship with the inventors of the airplane, Wilbur and Orville Wright. Their invention opened the window of the world and nourished my wanderlust but closed the most important window; family life.
It is painful not to be able to be the Queen Bee Grandmother, the matriarch of my family. I would give anything ( almost) to be able to run over to their house and take them for a burger and fries or a pair of Levis…all on the spur of the moment. A grandmother has so much to pass on to her grands and grandchildren have so much to give back.
