I was just sitting here thinking about old times,back when grandparents were really grandparents.When as a child we could'nt wait for mamaw an papaw to come pick us up an take us home with them.I remember the good cooking an the fun times we spent with them....an now just look what most kids grow up with,grandparents that are drug addicts.Grandparents that cant even buy a toy for the kids because it cuts in to their drug money.It's no wonder young people are the way they are.Things are so differnt than they use to be.Not many kids will ever experiance the good times with their family the way some of us older folks did.What a shame.It's amazeing how drugs has changed this world an the people in it.I am a papaw of three wonderful little kids an another one on the way,an i try my best to leave them with good memories of fun times with me.I know not many will read this because it is so long,but i just wanted to ask everyone to try an show all the kids just how good life an family can be without drugs.Most all familys are affected some way or another by drugs.An it's such a shame that these young people grow up watching the ones thats suppose to be protecting them pick drugs over them.So in closeing i just ask everyone to take time to show the young people in your life how much they mean to you,an set a good example for them so they will have someone to look up to.God Bless you all.

I read it is wonderful to know that there is some good grandparents still out for the kids that God has Blessed us to have and what beautiful kids we do have drugs have caused a plenty to miss the beauty of this life with there kids. but don't ever give up that God has the power to change things for them.

I am the grandma of two beautiful grandkids. I think the world of my grand babies. I am not on drugs nor have I ever been. Getting to see these babies grow up is a blessing that I will never forget. I have a lot of memories of all of my grandparents. Now that all my grand parents have passed, I truly realize the importance of the lessons they taught me and the memories that I have of them. I hope that I can be at least half the people that my grand parents were. Not everybody in this world is on drugs. I feel sorry for the people that are. They are the ones that are missing out on making those special memories with their loved ones. I hope that I can leave the same legacy of love that my grandparents created and left.
