You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.

A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.

The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent.
