When you enter the grandmotherhood stage of your life, you will have to think, ‘am I this old?’ Imagine having grandchildren? But you see, I don’t really think I’m that old. It’s just that my children are pretty enough (?) they got married early and produced babies which I now call grandchildren (and call me grand in return).
Up to the moment I am writing this, I really never imagined myself being a grandma. I don’t really feel I’m that old. (Does one really have old looks to be called grandmas/grandpas?) Now I know and realize how it is to be.
Being a grandmother or a grandfather doesn’t mean you are old in age. It’s not in age. It’s one stage in life that you have achieve successfully. It’s one capability of a person having been successful in everyday struggle. It’s a testimony of how you have traveled life this far.
I have been thinking this stage for days. I have come to think that this is just like schooling. Remember, we have to go through grade school before going to high school and then college where you will earn a degree. I’ve earned a degree in school and I’ve also earned a degree being a person. I think this is a proof I really have lived my life.
So, for grandparents out there, cheers!
