It's like falling in love...

A

sk any grandparent...when our children have children we are transformed, elevated to what I think of as a
next higher level of adulthood. My husband says he sees our grandkids like he's peering into the future;
into a world we helped create but that does not depend on us. We are participant and observer, and
only for now.
That may sound grim, but it can drive us to be our best selves...to be more patient, to listen longer and care
more deeply. Nothing makes me reflect more than realizing my actions this minute may be a useful or cherished memory a lifetime from now.

"

Want to be happy?
Try this...

Grandparenting is like falling in love.
If you haven't experienced it, you can't imagine
how fantastic it feels.

"

All this and more drove me to launch GRAND Magazine 16 years ago...I realized how a newbie grandparent can really screw things up and how much I had
to learn! There's an element of 'do-over' here, for sure, another chance to get it
right. Most of us can acknowledge mistakes we made as parents and with luck,
we've acquired a little grace and wisdom over the years...perhaps later than our
children would like but now they are depending on us to be our best for their
children.
This issue has some awesome authors with insights and tools for new, veteran
and long-distance grandparents. I hope you'll relax and peruse the pages with
an open mind and heart. Grandparenting is not a science and there's no app for
it (yet). We just bring our best selves and hope for a little luck!

WINTER 2021

Wishing you a year filled with peace, joy, health and love!
									Christine Crosby, editorial director

The one thing all humans have
in common is that each of us wants
to be happy, says Brother David
Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith
scholar. And happiness, he suggests,
is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking
where you're going, and above all,
being grateful.
David Steindl-Rast ยท Monk
Brother David Steindl-Rast,
a Benedictine monk, meditates and
writes on " the gentle power "
of gratefulness.
