There is no way that one could ever adequately convey the significance of grandparents in their grandchildren’s lives.
Joyce Allston asserts that “grandparents, like heroes, are as necessary to a child’s growth as vitamins,” and we couldn’t agree more with her sentiments.
The list of qualities that make these individuals “the best kind of grownups” is virtually limitless. They are a little bit like parents, a little bit like instructors, and a little bit like friends, and those of us who had the opportunity to grow up alongside them are the luckiest of us all.
A woman whose name was Erica Lusher and her son had not recently visited the woman’s parents. As a result of the sadness she felt over the fact that her boy and her parents would be separated for an extended period of time because of the COVID-19 restrictions, she made the decision to surprise her parents with a visit. The journey was well worth taking, despite the fact that it was 800 miles long.
At the same time that Erica’s mother and father were enjoying their meal at a small restaurant in Florida, she arrived there with her son. The response of the boy’s grandparents has been absolutely endearing and will melt your heart.
The grandma is the one who first notices them and she is taken aback by what she sees.
The grandpa’s eyes well up with tears of happiness every time he catches a glimpse of his grandchild. As he tries to make sense of what’s going on, he wraps his arms around the youngster and mutters the word “Buddy” to him as they embrace each other.
This film of the gathering demonstrates, more than ever before, that the love that exists between grandparents and grandchildren is one of the purest types of love that has ever been known to exist.
