There are lots of different names for grandmothers and I chose to be called Granny as my children had called my mum granny. I think that one of the best aspects of my life at the moment is being a granny. The joy when you visit your grandchildren and they run towards you with their arms wide shouting “Granny!” It certainly brings a smile to my face and a lovely inner feeling.
I have recently spent time with my grandchildren in Melbourne and those in Canberra so I have had a good dose of happiness which should last me till I next see them. I mustn’t forget that I also enjoy the company of my children and it is always great to spend time with them too. I am lucky to be able to spend time with my family as there are many parents who don’t get the opportunity because their children and grandchildren are too far away. I am grateful that I can see them as often as I do without becoming invasive of their family time.
