Is it fair to love your first grandchild most? I think not. It's not fair to the other grandchildren that Grandchild Number One got a headstart on your heart.
My first granddaughter will arrive soon. I will relay to her my vision of womanhood, sound of love, fragrance of family, flavor of wisdom, touch of heaven influenced by memories of my grandmothers.

A personal piece about how my grandma's influence has contributed to my way of life. Take a look.
Grandparents should enjoy their precious moments with grandchildren. A time to be relaxed not only to feel love and care also, to show love and care.
My grandma Ivy Trigg (nee Garnham) grew up in Yorkshire, in the UK, in the early 1900s, in a district where families were so poor that children were often barefoot in the street.
A look back at the 1930s at some of the experiences of my grandparents, Frank and Ivy Trigg, who were bringing up two young children (my mum Audrey and my uncle, Ken) in Hunslet, Leeds, UK.
Being a Grandmother is a tremendous gift, but I've seen some moms who need some help with that older generation. Here are a few things I've learned that have helped me be a better grandmother!
My family enjoyed many happy dinners at my grandmother's house and we remember her Desert Rose dishes. My sister and I purchased our own set of Franciscan Desert Rose to honor our deceased grandmother.
My grandmother was so nurturing. Being rocked in her lap and told stories was the greatest comfort in my childhood.
