They're the best. That's all there is to it.
If you're lucky to have at least one wonderful grandparent, you are the luckiest kid on earth. They can be the source of pure encouragement and confidence and joy. There's such a generational difference, but there's still this patience, slowness, and ease that is learned through old age. And sometimes, that's exactly what the fast-paced, sugared-out young ones need. Someone adoring. Someone's arms to jump into like a big, calm ocean. Someone who doesn't have a schedule, a to-do list. Someone who doesn't want to do anything but simply be with you and tells you how smart and talented and amazing you are.
I was lucky to have that from my grandparents as a kid. So, when I took this picture, I threw all of that hope, love, and memory into it. I felt just like this little girl. She felt all the same kind, warm, and loving feelings I did: love, safety, joy, peace.
