Parents transforming into elders is one of the finest feelings in life.
Parents first raise their kids and then their grandchildren.
But they feel pained when they see their grandchildren moving apart and not giving them much attention.
This causes strain in relationships as they feel that they have taken care of two generations and haven’t got respect.
Most of the grandchildren neglect grandparents but Brad Ryan did opposite to it he realized his responsibility of giving time to his grandma who is 85 years old and is trying to fulfill her wishes.
His grandma once said to him that, “she hasn’t seen oceans or mountains”.
Grandma Joy had never seen such places before although she went hiking with Brad as lived in the same town.
Brad decided to show the best of America to her grandma. He took her to US national Park although she was 85 years of age.
Their trip started in 2015 and traveled to the Smoky Mountain national park and to Clingman’s Dom.
After visiting it she went to 25 national parks and have enjoyed at Sand dunes as well. She loves to roam around and has traveled to the crystal clear mountains around sand dunes.
She holds a positive attitude towards life and is so cheerful. When they went to hiking on smoky they gave a tremendously positive response among people who leave their grandparents alone.
Since then they have traveled to 38 states and 25,000 miles within 3.5 years. Grandma joy has turned 85 and aims to visit 61 National parks more.
She enjoys her trip despite her age and even climbed on Clingman’s Dome she is full of life. Brad has even made a facebook page named “Grandma Joy’s Road trip” where he shares are the details and pictures of their trip.
Both grandson and grandmother are throwing out a positive and lively response to the world. Brad says that his grandmother thanks every day for waking up alive and has made habit of Brad too to thank God for little things in life.
He adds that when she will be gone all those places where she left her marks will provide him with spiritual energy and love.
