Dec 09, 2014 I award this book 3.5 stars. Letters to my grandchildren by David Suzuki is exactly what the title suggests. Suzuki would like to leave a compiled set of letters on topics that he believes to be really important to the next generation, and in fact, pulls no punches on telling the reader in the Author's Note that he believes this book to be a 'loose stream of ideas.' 4 Generation Pedigree Chart; How to Make a Family Tree Template. In the case of an ancestor tree your name(the name of the person making the family tree) should be at the bottom(or left) and the name of the parents, grandparents and maybe great-grandparents should expand upwards or towards the right.

My son’s son is turning 18 this month and he lives 3,000 miles away in Pennsylvania. My daughter’s daughter will be celebrating her first birthday next month—farther away in Fiji. So this grandmother is feeling rather emotional and overflowing with love at the moment. This letter is for all my grandchildren, my future great grandchildren, and for the children you love, and for all the children of the world.

Prompted by my dear friend, Fran, I originally wrote this “Letter to my grandchildren and great grandchildren” in 2009. I placed the hand-written version in my notebook that contains my Last Will and Testament, along with my notes and wishes for when they will be needed. But this week, after seeing all the pictures on Facebook of the sweet faces of all the children heading off to school, I was compelled to send this yesterday to my grandchildren. I mean really, why wait till I’m dead? And then I thought I’d share it here with you.

Please enjoy and share this letter. Feel free to adapt and change words and send this to a child you love.

Dear Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren,

First of all, I want you to know that you are a precious being, inside and out. You are infinitely loved—loved and treasured beyond words. You have been loved long before you were born to your incredible parents. You picked them, and they picked you! You have special things to teach each other.

You are so deserving of all good. You are enough. Never, ever doubt that, no matter what the world around you might say.

Whenever you encounter a tough choice or decision, get quiet and ask God or Spirit or whatever you call the Divine, to light up the way to the answer. You will probably find the answer delivered to your heart, not your head.

When you grow into adulthood, don’t feel compelled to fall into the stress of “earning” a living. Create your days doing what you love. You don’t need to earn or strive, but be who you are and use your gifts and talents to share with the world.

Be of service. Be a force for love. Offering your gifts to the world can unfold in many ways.

Let generosity flow. And notice how important is to both give AND receive graciously.

Letter To Grandchild From Grandmother

Oh yes, when you choose your life’s path, it gets to be your path, not your parents. Be all that you are and don’t copy anyone else. You are an original!

Love deeply and love passionately. Be sure to not give up any part of yourself to please others. Take care of yourself first, not in a selfish way, but in a self-FULL way.

Never let anyone silence you. Your respectful and honest voice deserves to be spoken.

Practice forgiveness. (Oh, it does take practice!) When you forgive someone, it doesn’t make their actions right but you will find yourself released from the pain. And sometimes it’s important to feel the anger first, (righteous anger, I’ve heard it called) before you can get to the forgiving part.

Don’t worry about the future but make healthy decisions today so your future will be grand and the planet will be better than it ever was when you arrived. Leave it better for your children and grandchildren.

Know that peace begins in your heart. And know that having peace in your heart is where world peace can blossom.

When things are overwhelming and challenging and you are not sure what to do, offer all of it over to the Divine. You can do this in your head, or you can write it down, or you can throw your hands up and say, “Here! This is Yours!” Then listen for the next best step to take—and take it.

Be grateful. Every night before you go to sleep, think of at least ten things to be grateful for so you are smiling as you drift off to dreamland.

And know, that as you read or re-read this at any age in your life, I am either loving you from this earth or from beyond.

There is only love.

Love never dies.

Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format.Excerpt from Memorial Letters to My Grandchildren My Dear Grandchildren: I am made very happy in the thought that you all were old enough to know and remember your grandpapa. It is a pleasure to think that he was near and with you during the last summer of his life; that you saw him every day and that you learned, at least the older ones among you, to know his pleasant smile and to feel that he loved you. I think, too, that you will remember the last time you looked upon his kindly face when he lay peacefully at rest, and you placed your hand upon his cold forehead, and he did not open his eyes to greet you or move his lips for the usual kiss. And perhaps you will never forget the sweet and tender services in my sick room, where you all came to comfort me before the dear form was carried from my sight to the church, where you listened to the solemn services, and where you saw the many friends who had gathered to pay their last loving tribute of respect to him. I hope it will not prove to be so sad a lesson as it seemed at the time, but that its memory will be such a help and blessing to you in your future life that the sadness will no longer overshadow it. Though you may remember all these things about your grandpapa, you will still know but little about his life that I think you would like to know, unless some one, who was familiar with him, is able and willing to tell you; so I have determined to write you a series of letters, beginning with his infancy, which shall give you a brief sketch of his early home, his life, and his character: and this shall be my labor of love for him and for you. You have all been to the pleasant old homestead where his baby eyes first opened to the light of this beautiful world; you know the charming views from every point of the hill on which the house stands, just in the edge of Franklin, Massachusetts, and very near the Charles River, which runs at the foot of the hill and divides Franklin from Medway.
