Photo Wednesday: Grandparents’ Stardust

 New York 2005


Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.
Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
– Alex Haley


 Unknowingly, our grandparents influence us one way or another.  For those of us whose grandparents were physically there for us, they could mean supporter, role model, mentor, playmates, or travel buddies. For those geographically impossible to be together, emotional presence is just the same significant.

My grandfather was my travel buddy when I was younger. I remember how my cousins and I  would make a bee line towards his car whenever he would go visit the farm. It is too bad that we didn’t have pictures from all those little field trips. I am definitely a recipient of those stardusts.

The same is true with my niece. On one of her regular check ups, my niece who was 4 years old at that time told her doctor, “My problem is that my mama and papa are going home to the Philippines.” aaaw.
