What makes me smile??? This does…

Thinking about something that makes me smile….not a very hard question to answer.

My granddaughter makes me smile….

I have had the great fortune to share many moments and hours with my 2 year old granddaughter since the hour that she was born. She makes me truly smile with joy!

There really is not anything greater than watching a child develop and grow …to observe them see things for the first time.

How wonderful to be able to share their excitement at watching a front load washing machine swish back and forth and dance to the rhythm of it. I would never think to dance to my washing machine ….would you?

Sure there were those nights of every four-hour feedings…I enjoyed them as strange as that seems…it was my time to share in the quiet of her space.

Even “meltdowns” are more tolerable when it comes to a grandchild…with age I have become more accepting of the moment and I am ever learning.

I have more patience now and can understand her frustration of not being able to express her feelings through words. How must that feel??? Awful…no wonder the crying.

This is a wonderful way to age….to share it with a child…what a blessing!
