Quotes About Grandparents

To find quotes about grandparents, to use, or send to friends and family, enjoy our collection of inspirational quotes and sayings. Grandparents are more than an extension of a family. They are more than babysitters, more than a secure home to leave grandchildren and more than just ordinary people. Grandparents show unrelenting love, care, and enduring concern that extend beyond their grandchildren's parents. To a grandchild, it doesn't matter that grandma or grandpa be older, greyer, or a little slower; grandchildren accept their grandparents for who they are, for their kindness, love, affection, teaching, stories, and the occasional cookie or candy. There is nothing more cherished as when a grandchild can't wait to get to their grandparents home in expectation of all things wonderful, fun, and loving.
