Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.
Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
– Alex Haley
There is no grandfather who does not adore his grandchild.
– Victor Hugo
A grandparent is a best friend, teacher, cheerleader, and counselor.
Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us,
as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends,
and hardly ever our own grown children.
– Ruth Goode
It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the
fullness of their grace.

A house needs a grandma in it.
– Louisa May Alcott
The best place to be when you’re sad is a grandparent’s lap.
Grandchildren are God’s way of compensating us for growing old.

Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see
just me all day, and now the day was complete.

Me. McCurry, I do not understand how you can pull emotions into such portraits that make you feel like you are there. Experience? Thank you for sharing these. I never knew my grandparents, but I have made sure that my kids knew theirs.
As always your photos speak many words and they are perfect in expressing every emotion captured by the thoughts you express. I love your art and never tire of the human spirit you capture .
your pictures are amazing as usual. I love the quotes, because they give us the sense that love continues

Steve a beautiful piece of work
Lovely. Love continues in veins.
Being a grandma I totally agree!!!!🤗
Thank you for evoking some of the most enduring memories of my childhood.
My 60+ yr old brother in CO, cuz De in NJ, sister Pers in NYC and I (MS) were just emailing rapidly memories of our Nana, an amazing woman who handled 17 grandkid hellions with hugs that smelled of soap and cinnamon and sunlight, her silent laughter at our antics. Patient, open minded, a safe quiet spot in a chaotic world where our parents divorced, cheated, drank, seemed to forget us.
Taught us how to hike trails, best swimming holes, what was fools gold, what warm berries we’re good, what plants were pretty poison.
In 2nd grade, we wrote about the person we admired most. Not JFK or Neil Armstrong, Nana!
My grandmother was the most amazing woman and I love her everyday, even though she’s been gone for so many, many years. I adore her. She was magic. Your photographs are gorgeous, as always.
What beautiful expressions of love through your photography of grandparents love ~ very touching !

Oh, how I longed for a grandparent . . . but I was born too late.
Your comments and especially your photographs are so thoughtful and moving. I have 10 grandchildren, 7 born to my children and 3 acquired through marriages. Each one is unique. Relationships vary in intensity, but they each fill me with that unconditional love and joy that can’t be described in any other way. GRAND CHILDREN.
Sir, this heart-warming pictures with the beautiful quotes reminds me of my grandparents and the lovely bond I shared with them. They are no more but I cherish my fond memories of them. Thank you.
Awesome as always …
Beautiful and sweet and touching.
Beautiful, touching set of photograps and equally beautiful quotes.
Thank you Stevebhai

What a beautiful touching post once again Steve! As a grandmother, you touched me behond words. Thank you !
Thank you for this moving post, Steve. As a new grandmother, I relate to your images and the quotes which convey that special bond. 💞
Steve, your work always touches me, but this topic particularly moved me as I have a very special relationship with my granddaughter who is the apple of my eye. I look forward to sharing your blog posting with her. Bless you for reminding us of the beauty of humanity.
wonderful as always. As a Grandmother bringing up a 16 year old in today’s cyber world, it is good to look at the universality of grandparenting
Stunning as always!!
