Through the wisdom of the passing years, an appreciation is gained for the simple pleasures to be experienced in life. It cannot be said that grandparents love more than parents, I am merely pointing out the change in perspective. Grandparents have the opportunity to love without the distractions of youth. They have done their time in the pursuit of passing fancies. They can see that the most important things come from the love of those around them. Just as I could see past futility and was able to be patient, the elderly can love patiently and freely, knowing that what is most important comes from the love of others.
