I ’VE DISCOVERED IT, AND MILLIONS MORE HAVE TOO! No, it’s not a new drug or cosmetic it’s having grandchildren in your life! If you are already a grand, you know just what I’m talking about—that amazing reversal of age that happens when you are in the company of your grandchildren. Our happy secret: When you become a grand, you get back in touch with your own youth in a powerful and magical way through the eyes, hearts and souls of your grandkids. Being youthful is far more than counting (or not counting) your years on this planet, or wrinkles or other real or imaginary imperfections. In the eyes of your grandchildren you are ageless, and that is exactly what happens when you allow it. Lately I’ve noticed a wonderful thing happening all over the world. More and more grandparents are proudly coming out of the “grandparent closet.” It used to be that when you said you were a grandparent, it was as if you were making an admission of old age and decrepitude. It wasn’t until I started GRAND that a woman I’d known professionally for more than 15 years admitted to me (in confidence) that she too was a grand. She said that she’d never admit it publicly, as it would hurt her career. I felt sad for her, and it made me wonder how many more grands were hiding from the world one of life’s truly most amazing and exciting times of life. All I can say is if this is one of the symptoms of our youthcentric society, it’s time for a change! This is just the start of a new social revolution; now the Gen-X, Y and every succeeding generation has a new grand model to emulate and improve upon. I hope you enjoy this issue, and be sure to check out the 2009 GRANDparent of the Year Award presented by Humana on page 8. Tell us about that special grand in your life—they just might win an all-expenses-paid vacation to Orlando. With my best to you and your family, Christine Crosby, Publisher ccrosby@grandmagazine.com 2009 4 GRAND JULY
