Here at Grandparentslink, we try not to focus much on age…. I mean who does!? We like to focus on what makes us feel healthy, energetic and you got it, YOUNGER! We like to consider ourselves as “Super Agers”.

First and foremost- Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!
I want to take this moment to share a most intimate discovery in the evolution of relationships for grandparents on a very personal level. And, what better day… where the celebration of love is so acknowledged and embraced.
Ever awakened to someone singing the tune of “Happy Birthday to you….” in your ear before you’ve even wiped the crust from your eyes? And, while the sentiments were totally appreciated, truth be told, you actually were hoping that everyone would just FORGET that it’s your birthday! Right? Well, you are NOT alone! Of course, we know that getting older is inevitable, but, when is it okay to stop celebrating? That stuff is for kids… right?! Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!
The role of being a grandparent is quite possibly one of the best adventures of life! Maybe you’ve longed to be a grandparent and now the time has finally come, or you might already be deep in the trenches. Wherever you are in your journey, it’s always a good idea to step back and explore yourself as a grandparent.
How often is there a social media challenge for grandparents? Well, here it is!
We are challenging grandparents to redefine who today’s grandparents are. Who are you? Are you an exercise fanatic? Can you spin just as fast as your adult kids? Are you the best baker around? Do you tell the funniest jokes? Do you volunteer and want us all to know about it? Are you an artist, a musician, a yoga teacher? Do you have a job? What are you? We are a nation of GRAND grandparents, and you are one of them. Join us. Let’s see what grandparents are up to in 2019. Make a video (no longer than 59 sec), and please post it on Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag: #grandparentslink2019
