My grandparents hold a very special place in my heart. They may have had their imperfections, but — naturally — they were human. Sometimes it’s the humanity in people, or their ability to overcome adversity or flaws in themselves, that is the most admirable.
Think back to moments you experienced with your grandparents that are really memorable. What qualities did one or more of your grandparents possess that you look back on with admiration? What qualities did they possess that you wish your own grandchildren would appreciate in you? What qualities do you hope your grandchildren will possess someday as well? Write out a few specific examples. Give yourself 15 minutes.
