Celebrating Grandparents and Their Many Roles

They wear many hats for their grandkids.


The first Sunday after Labor Day in the U.S. is known as Grandparents Day, but really, celebrating and honoring grandparents should not be limited to a single day. It should be a daily, year-round affair.

Grandparents play an important role in our lives. From childhood to adulthood, those who have their grandparents are fortunate souls.

Grandparents wear different hats depending on different situations. Sometimes they play the role of a guardian. In cases where a child is without a mother and/or a father, grandparents step up to the plate and raise the child as their own. Sometimes, grandparents make the coolest friend or the most trusted confidante. Oftentimes grandparents are the best spring board for ideas. At times they play devil’s advocate, but we can rest assured that every grandparent in the world wants nothing short of the best for his or her grandchild.

Author Ronald Shank is one such awesome grandparent. He wants the best for his grandkids. Telling them stories is not enough, so he published a book for them in hopes that they remember all their shared stories, all their fun memories, and his love for them.

“Grandpa’s Stories” is a compilation of short stories written by author Ronald Shank that other grandparents and grandkids in the world may also enjoy. For maximum effect, these stories should be read by grandparents to their grandkids, a sure-fire way of creating beautiful, lasting memories together.

About the Author

Ronald Shank has been writing off and on for 50 years. He started with poetry—some rhyming, most not; some long, some short; some humorous, others sad, but always very simple. He moved on to articles and newsletters and eventually into short stories. He has always found it enjoyable to write, just not always convenient. Even now with work and their little farm and church, it keeps him very busy and it’s hard to find the time to write.

He lives in Gray Court, South Carolina, on a small farm they call Bumble Bee farm, because they live on Bumble Bee Lane. It’s actually their driveway, since they are the only ones on Bumble Bee Lane. He has lived in a number of places over the years, from New England to Florida, to the Mid-West, to North Carolina, and finally, to South Carolina.

He held many and varied jobs over the years as well as a short tour of duty in the Air Force in the late sixties, where he was stationed in Maine, Labrador, and New Mexico. He found the Lord back in 1995, and that was when he really started to write seriously. First Christmas stories, evidenced by his book “Holiday Stories Volume 1,” and then he started to write Easter and Thanksgiving stories, evidenced by his book “Holiday Stories Volume 2.” Thereafter, he started to write little stories for the grandchildren, especially for their birthdays. He wanted it to be something they would have and could enjoy even when they got older, possibly reading to their children and grandchildren someday. He looks forward to writing a novel someday in the not-too-distant future (most likely after he retires), but for now, short stories seem to suit him best.
