Will You Walk with Me?

In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with.
            — Charles M. Schulz
My eight-year-old grandson asked me a question, punctuated by his best grown-up voice,  

"Will you go with me on my school class trip to the Museum of Natural Sciences?
Life: Packed with Punctuation  

Parents are the 'to-dos and not-to dos!', punctuated with periods and exclamation marks, and friends are our commas, giving us pause from the hectic hours of the day.  iPads and other devices are our parenthesis, closing us off from real life.

But grandparents are the question marks, always ready with thoughts to ponder, guiding young minds into spaces of discovery.
        -------G. Hill

Will You Sit with Me?

Grandparents and grandchildren, together they create a chain of love linking the past, with the future. The chain may lengthen, but it will never part.
          – Unknown (But I wish I said it.)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.
        ------Proverbs 22:6
So, I will pack a lunch for two and throw in some good questions to chew on, too.
          -----Grandma GiGi

    Loved the thoughts of how important family-grandparents – can and should be in training a child to live well.

    1. It was as simple as a ready smile that my grandfather had for me as a little girl. No matter what was happening on that busy farm, he always had time for a smile just for me. I felt important and valued in his eyes.

    1. It looks just like him, but no. The photo is a free image from Pixabay, yet certainly captured the essence of Donnie B.
