On Being a Grandparent

Joy – Regrets – Forgiveness – Grace

June 27, 2015



 

Family DNA

Swimming around ...in this little person

Generations poured ...into this tiny soul

Son, husband, parents even me –

Formed this new creation

Uniquely individual

God’s miracle.

-Pure Joy-


 

Parenting -

Could I have...done it better?

Most certainly, YES !

More patience, less fear

Better understanding, fewer worries

Wisdom elusive...Insights unclear

Woulda’..Shoulda’..Coulda’

-Unwanted Regrets-


 

A new generation

Learns from the past

Inherited dysfunctions...diminish with time

We give...what we can,

As did those...who came before.

Acceptance overcomes...disappointment.

Fact replaces fiction.

- Welcomed Forgiveness –


 

A journey of...trial and error.

No one-size fits all.

A time for second chances

Hearts full..of boundless love

The do-over of all do-over’s

This life of a grandparent

- God’s Redemptive Grace -
