(Barbie Kelley)

Hello Grandchild, itís easy to say
I give you my love in a different way
A way that was not introduced to me
A way with no worries, just love, care and peace

Hello Grandchild, How I love you so
My love is unique, I just want you to know
This kind is shared with none other than you
Unconditional love that is easy to show

Some nights I dream I can turn back the hands of time
If I could see then what I see when I look back now
I would stop in my tracks and I would realize
My babes would be loved and treated like my grandchild

Hello Grandchild, please learn this from me
Iím afraid that your parents know not how to be
Donít blame them, for it began long ago
Just learn from me, and let unique love show

At the time I wrote this song, I was single. I donít remember everything that I was thinking then, but I know what Iíve learned from being a parent now. As an adult, we have the opportunity to choose how we want to parent our children. We can take the good from our childhoods, and leave the bad behind. Easier said than done! I am so thankful to be in a relationship with God while being a parent. He has changed me in so many ways that I could have never done on my own. There is no other way to change generations and generations of sin, but with Jesus in our lives.
