It is hard to narrow it down, but when I go to pick them up for the weekend, and they know it's me coming through the door, they almost knock me down from running so fast, as they are so thrilled to see me, and they are screaming "Nannie, Nannie, Naniel" and smiling from ear to ear. Then come the big hugs. I guess just knowing they love me so much, as I guess they know how much I love them.
Absolutely everything - I just can't narrow it down to anything in particular. I'm having the time of my live being Mimi!
I think that the depth of love I feel for my grandchildren has been the nicest surprise and it makes me very happy. It is like having my own children back at that age again and it is so much fun watching them grow and discover things in life.
Only other Grandparents can relate to how it feels and even then, words can not fully express the joy a Grandchild can bring. But like Faith Reaper, when Troy sees Grandma, even though he is only 11 months old, his arms are spread wide open as he leans in to grab for me, with a grin that never stops. But to answer your question ... there are too many things about being Troy's Grandma, that makes me the happiest. Sorry for being so vague ... it's just not possible any other way.
This is such a good question. I'm encouraged to see the comments here because it seems I'm not the only Grand who cannot come up with a definition to why grand-parenting is so utterly fulfilling. I was sharing about this very thing during a recent meeting with some cousins I don't see very often. One of them said "Being a grandparent is something I've always been waiting for but did not know I was until it happened." I thought that was such a fitting expression.
Grandkids are so accepting and full of unconditional love. I suppose that's what makes me happiest!!
I only have one and will have no more. He's 2 1/2 and last week he spent the night with me and the next day at a family gathering. I adore him and our special alone time together like that. When they were leaving he cried and cried for me to go home with him. Even though it broke my heart he was upset, I was so touched by the whole thing I had to cry myself, when they got out the door. My son said he was upset all the way home. And twice during the next week he had his parents to call his Gramma. And in his very limited vocabulary the message was clear "Mere Gramma, my house".
Their innocence and the hundred percent love they show are amazing. Their baby talk and the way they imitate are a delight to watch.

I've often said, the issue of being afraid to come out of the closet, is because you don't want to lose a loved one, a family member who might stop loving you because you are gay. I've also said, WHO CARES! Happiness is...
