Our grandfathers are fun to be around. Their presence helps us to learn, laugh, and experience what its like to be in their shoes. Our grandfathers are both a blessing and a disguise. Here are five of the best reasons we love our grandfather so much:
They have patience for days.
They are always excited to see their grandchildren.
They give a lot of gifts, probably more than any other family member.
They are not on their mobile phone all day – they didn’t grow up with technology and extremely attentive in interactions with children, while many parents today are preoccupied on their phone.
And here are seven of the best quotes that say a lot about our grandfathers:
