Having grandparents living with you at home is such a wonderful feeling. Grandparents have a special bond with their grandchildren which induce a feeling of love and care inside us.
Imagine someone having by your side whenever you require care and knowledge, this brings so much of self confidence and hell load of beautiful stories. Today, September 12, is dedicated to all the lovely grandparents who bring an opportunity to us to be more emotionally resilient.
We meet our best friends at school, college, office but grandparents are the first best friends of our life to whom most of us meet in the beginning of our journey. From taking us to school to the bedtime stories, they are all treasured memories.
Most of the research has shown that living with grandparents has a positive impact on children. They become more responsive towards others’ feelings and have a sense of emotional maturity.
Moreover, children living with grandparents never have to appeal for attention and care. There are less cases when they complain about loneliness. They are the only ones who reflect the teaching of being united and wise thinkers.
Remember whenever we felt low and one of our grandparents helped us to revive back and made us laugh so hard! That choori made up of jaggery, tortillas and pure ghee from granny’s hand tasted like a dessert from heaven. Playing with them and making them our imaginary students was the best student and teacher duo.
I have learned that life never stops giving you opportunities to learn, from my granddad when he started learning English in his 70s. Hardest things can be moulded into the way you demand only by love and care from my granny.
One mantra which helped me till now in my life which was taught by my grandparents is, “Respect the life you live and everything will become aligned.”
Happy Grandparents Day!
