Parents and Grandchildren
I was talking to an older friend of mine. She is caring for her parents and yet has grandchildren. She was sharing how she and her husband want to go on a vacation but she has to be home to care for her 93 year old parents. She asked her children if they could each take a turn coming over for dinner and just spending a few ours. She encouraged her kids to bring their children. How many kids are able to spend time with great grandparents! Each of her children told her they were too busy. I was so angry for her. I would give anything to have a night with my grandparents whom have all passed away going on ten years or so. How selfish we have become. Their idea of busy is working and coming home to sit on the couch. None of her kids are that busy that they could not carve out a night to help out their parents and spend time with the grandparents. Such a shame.
