Sharing the honey of life

You can’t one day decide to know your (grand) children and have it magically happen. You begin from the beginning by sharing “the honey” of life, as well as providing “the milk.” Knowing someone means sharing ideas, growing together. It means not being embarrassed about feelings or being yourself. As a small boy, our son frequently commented, “I like him. He treats me like I’m a people.” It became a family saying; being treated like “a people” means being taken seriously and being liked for who you really are. Interpersonal relationships within a family develop on this level.   - Gladys Hunt
