Top Ten Best Things About GrandparentsI lost my grandfather a few weeks ago, so this is obviously very personal for me. However, I have no doubt that others will wish to share their own experiences.
The Top Ten
Both of my grandparents were so loving, caring, and just about anything else I can think of. My grandfather died when he was 86. But, of course, I still have grandma attached to my heart no matter what - Stazemar000
My grandfather helped make me the person I am and will continue to develop into. A love of nature, a sense of humour, a fascination with history, and an appreciation for music are only a few things he instilled in me. - PetSounds
I remember my grandpa used to give me mini art lessons. I can only imagine how early I discovered I loved it. - keycha1n
Definitely.They left such an impact on me! - UltimateHybridX
While age does not necessarily make someone more wise than you, it certainly means they have more life experience. Listen--you'll learn. - PetSounds
Yes. That is definitely true. And I can agree with PetSounds on one thing... if your grandparents have already raised your parents, they would probably be more than happy to raise you - Stazemar000
Chances are, if they've already raised your parents, they'll be more than happy to help raise you. They see not only themselves in you, but also the other traits that make you different and unique. - PetSounds
They love me, and I love them to this very day. - Ninja_Potato123
I love my grandparents, but I do have to remind myself this a lot because they tend to show their love in...different ways. - keycha1n
My grandparents were all born before Germany invaded Poland. Think about the history they've experienced. - PetSounds
My grandparents were kids during the great depression and times before fridges existed - Ihateschool
When my grandparents lived during 1920-1925, India hadn't got independence - Animefan12
My grandparents grew up during the Great Depression and WW2. My Grandpa even nearly fight in Korea. They got married and had my uncle during the Cuban Missile Crisis - SirSkeletorThe3rd
They're way more patient than my parents... - Therandom
My grandparents are amazing people. They'll always look out for you. I love them, and I know they love me back. - Turkeyasylum
My friend was adopted by her grandparents after her parents were drug addicts. - AnonymousChick
But they're right. - 80sGreatestOffice
I like this especially. They usually aren't caught up in things like technology, and it's nice just sitting down and playing checkers with them. - Minecraftcrazy530
I have fond memories of playing Chinese checkers and cribbage with them. - PetSounds
My grandparents never skimped (and those still living still don't) where their grandchildren were concerned. They've given me so many gifts, both tangible and intangible. - PetSounds
My grandparents are very generous. - nintendofan126
I can relate to this. It's a good thing that grandparents don't care about being too judgmental no matter what you have to share (whether being good or bad). They listen to what you have to say. - Stazemar000
My grandfather and I didn't have much in common, but he often told me I was a fascinating individual. I wish there was a way I could've told him the same thing before he passed away. - PositronWildhawk
Every single relative has wholeheartedly supported my choice to do art. Which trust me, is something to be really grateful of with Chinese immigrant families.
Though I've had a couple tell me I should drop church. Lol - keycha1n
Because the generational gap between you and them is so great, they know you're growing up differently. But they never try to force you to be like them. - PetSounds
About three months before he died, my 84-year-old grandfather became obsessed with Gatorade. He drank a bottle every day, and orange was his favourite.
Even though I'm an athlete, I hate the stuff. - PetSounds
My grandma loved to know about our family history. She was also obsessed with Native Americans and painting. I remember when she first got a Facebook account. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I love the money they give me. 5 bucks could get me 250 candies. This is with 1 set of patents so I'll vote something else with my other set.
Well, my maternal grandparents are pretty overprotective. They say me and my brother should never ever eat a pizza or chocolate or any junk food ever, even if we just eat one piece. And they think that anything that is not studying or exercising is a waste of time. My paternal grandparents are more supportive of us eating them, and even give us candy.
For sure they make us to explore more and fell in love with oneself and build self confidence
