Wow, I am glad I read this, thank you for mentioning it to me. This was beautiful, the way you have weaved the emotions and struggle of being a parent and grandparent. Yes, grandparents can play the same role as parents in making kids understand the complexeties of life while not loosing the essense of being simple and sorted. Our kids’s struggles are going to be so much different than ours and our parents, that’s why we need such conscious attempts in gaining new perspectives and applying the right filters to our lives.
Loved your post.
