To avoid the scorching sun, we all like to sit in the shade of a big tree and wish that the shade remains there for a longer time. The same is with our grandparents. They are like bid shady trees in our lives protecting us from any kind of danger and try to soothe us. As the grandchildren are born, the grandparents experience rebirth too.
Grandmothers never find anything wrong in their grandchildren. The little grandchildren make the grandmother feel that they are also wanted in this world and everything has not come to an end for them. There are many social values which the children pick up when they are with their grandparents. The infinite love of the grandparents makes the grandchildren feel that special emotional bonding that unites them forever, and we have summarized it in this compilation of the 30 best grandma quotes.
