Ways to use quotes

About now you may be thinking to yourself "What am I supposed to do with these quotes". I have a few suggestions for you.

1. Print quote out in a nice font and frame it.

2. Order a digital photo album filled with family pictures and intersperse with quotes or sayings.

3. Have your favorite quote made into vinyl lettering and adhere to a mirror or decorative plate.

4. Make your own homemade greeting card.

5. Use a shorter quote to engrave inside a bracelet.

6. Include a quote inside a store bought card or as an inscription inside a book cover.

7. Backstitch a quote on aida cloth and turn it into a wall hanging or little pillow.

8. Paint a quote on a frame and use picture of you and your grandparents.

9. Use quotes to decorate scrapbook pages.

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudy Giuliani

The Changing Role Of The Grandparent

When I was a child, oh so many years ago, the role of a grandparent was to spoil, guide, and love you. Oh yes, they were also there to listen, give you hugs, and to listen.

The role of a grandparent is still all those things but has expanded to include raising their grandchild in many cases. I was amazed to find out that there are over 13 million children in the United States alone that are being raising by a grandparent.

Many of these grandparents are living either in the poverty level or below. The grandchildren are lucky to have them. They are there to offer love and support.

We now find grandparents becoming parents again. We are seeing more grandparents back in the work force instead of enjoying their golden years.

That being said, the love they get back in exchange more than compensates them for the big change in their life.

The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children’s children. It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future. ~Charles and Ann Morse
