The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?
Being a mother and grandmother is the best of the best in my life. My grandchildren multiply the joy my daughters bring me.
Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation.

William J. Clinton
