About 1 billion people in the world today are grandparents. Because humans are living longer, we are spending more time in the grandparenting role compared to past generations. As a result, more and more people are embracing the silver age of wisdom and the perks that come with it.
So as a tribute to all those perfectly fluffy apple pies only grandmas know how to make, and to these seriously useful handy skills you can only thank your grandpa for, Bored Panda has compiled this joyful list of wholesome grandparents.
From grandparents meeting their newborn grandchild for the first time and crying their eyes out from happiness, to grandma knitting a rainbow sweater after her granddaughter came out as bi, this is the grandlove we all deserve in life.
I said it was no problem and that it actually looked very comfortable, so she immediately offered one to me. It’s not like I could have rejected this generous gift…
About halfway through our fishing, his rod broke and there were several knots in his line. Not only did my grandpa completely fix his rod he untied the knots. Never been more proud of him.
He let my mom help him find a new kitten after a couple weeks. This is the picture she sent me.
She asked me what it meant and I explained. On her own, she researched and made a hat that includes both the flag & the girl’s favorite color, green.
The mom was actually killed by a car, but the baby was spared. Trust me, I’m not one to mess with wildlife, but this lil guy needed some help, and my grandpa plans on turning him over to a rehabilitation center.
My sister went to visit our grandparents today and our grandfather (who unfortunately has dementia) felt really sad for the dogs who had to stay outside. So he spent the day entertaining them by showing them various paintings.
Now, I am the first person in our family to get a Master’s Degree, and as I lined up for graduation, she handed me my own…identical to hers and told me she was proud of me.
My barely 5ft tall grandfather wanted me to show “those people on your phone” his zucchini. But first he needed sunglasses so that he looks cool for the internet. Also the last picture is of him doing what he will do to those who say that his zucchini is ugly. Bless his soul
The note says: “Good Morning. Thank you for all the things you do little or big. Made a pot of coffee but cut it off did not know what time you would be here. Maybe you can heat it up. Love you very much. See you in a little while. Saw 3 deer @ 6:50. Tommy”
If they’re sick he medicates them (nurses them back to health), he builds homes for them on his porch, he feeds them all. Even wild deer and raccoons eat from his hand. He’s truly inspiring.
He’s survived bacterial meningitis and the doctors were 99% sure he was going to die. He is the nicest and funniest guy I know and he would do anything for me. Every time he does something I smile, because he means so much to me
He is 95 years old, and is the sweetest, most caring person I’ve ever met. Though his wife has passed, and his kids and grandkids are grown, he never stops making an effort to love people. Andrew and I have gone out to dinner with him a number of times, and Earl always tells us he can be our “next door grandpa.” I’ve never had a better neighbor. I hope to be half as giving, caring and amazing as him in my lifetime
