Some say to age gracefully is to simply accept that you are getting older instead of fighting against it. Others say it’s about finding ways to make sure aging doesn’t stop you from living the life you want.
There is no doubt that grandparents have a unique relationship with their grandchildren. They often serve as a friend, mentor and your biggest fan throughout childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Grandparents can fill roles that parents may not. Whether it is guidance or entertainment, grandparents are always there to bring joy and perspective into our lives. Take time this year to celebrate and appreciate the grandparents or seniors in your life by planning one of these meaningful activities for Grandparent’s Day on September 8th. Cook something together: Perhaps your grandma or grandpa makes a favorite dish or dessert you love, but you have not taken the time to learn it for yourself. Sometimes a recipe can only tell you so much. It's helpful to walk through the steps together and learn the secret tricks to make those chocolate chip cookies so delicious. Schedule a photo shoot together: It doesn’t have to be with an expensive photographer or camera but schedule time to capture photos of you with your grandma and/or grandpa. Pick a spot that has a nice background and ask another family member to play photographer for you. Better yet, print your photos and pair them with a nice frame to give to your loved ones or keep for yourself. Look through old photos: Pull out those old photo albums and look through them together with your grandparents. It’s fun to reminisce about old times and see your grandparents when they were much younger. If you have older pictures without labels or dates, make it a goal to write details on each photo. It’s helpful to document names and dates for future generations to come. Life story questions: It’s often easy to forget that your grandparents had a life before you were born. Sit down and ask them a few questions about what their life was like as a child or young adult. Who knows, you might just learn something. Here is a list of life story questions to get the conversation started. Create a family tree: Learning about your ancestors can be a very eye-opening experience. It can bring a greater sense of identity and pride in your family history. Grandparents are a wealth of knowledge available for building this family tree. You can also consult websites such as ancestory.com to find even more details of your family history. A family tree is a great memento to pass along to future generations or family members. We hope these ideas help you create memories with your grandparents this year. Enjoy spending time with them and celebrating the impact they make in your life.…
