Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild. ~Welsh Proverb
Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day, and is a time set aside to celebrate the very special relationship between grandchildren and their grandparents. This is the perfect opportunity to teach children about the wisdom and experience that older generations can offer to their families, and to society in general. Marian McQuade, who was instrumental in establishing the holiday, wasn’t interested in it being a big commercial holiday. Instead, she wanted Grandparents Day to be a time to celebrate family, and her vision was to see families gathering, holding family reunions, and spending time together.
On Grandparents Day, the older generation is encouraged to share stories which convey their hopes and dreams for their grandchildren; while the extended family can take advantage of the opportunity to shower their loved ones with gratitude and love. Adrian Durban Florist has the floral arrangements and bouquets that will express your appreciation.
The Impact of Grandparents: Being a grandparent is definitely a major milestone, and approximately three-quarters of grandparents state that having grandchildren is the single most fulfilling role that they have played. Just over one third of American households have a grandparent living in residence, and 70% of those grandparents will tell you that having grandchildren has improved the relationship between them and their grown children as well.
It goes to prove that the new relationships established when a grandchild is born positively impact the entire family. What a wonderful fact to celebrate!
