This morning it is beautifully light around the blinds. Feels like promise and hope. Light is so wonderful, so necessary to do work, for those of us who work by sight and with our hands. I love the promise of a new day.
First of all, a marvelous website. A treasure of a find. This site has stirring photos and a wealth of information on gathering, harvesting, traditions, and more. I have only started to delve into this site: Gather Victoria. You might need a cup of tea before sitting down to browse this one. I will be placing a link to Gather Victoria on my page “Interesting Stuff from Around the Web.”
They grow so quickly. I see them and just want to squeeze them with joy and delight, but they sure do love their mama and daddy. They certainly know me as their grandma, or “mawmaw” as Grandson L likes to proclaim loudly, but the littlest would prefer I not scoop her up and keep her from her mama’s arms, and that is a sweet, sweet love between a mama and baby.
I love this picture, capturing the personality of Princess A as she watches a movie. She and her brother closest in age both love Frozen. Would not surprise me if that was what she was watching. I did not really even look at the movie. I looked at A. She balanced her wobbly self at the couch edge and wondered, is grandma going to scoop me up again? Yes!
You can see that A wants down, but she is not crying. She is familiar with me and feels safe, but her inclination is just go ahead and pass me to mama, please.
You can see Little Princes A wanting to move on to more familiar arms. So darling. That said, as they get older, they want to be with “mawmaw,” and I love that!
Meanwhile, daddy was holding Grandson G.
I am so thankful for my children! We have all come such a long way! I am very thankful to God, that He allowed me to know through the years that they would grow quickly; that He put in my heart a love for them to give them time and attention and to tell them about Him. We all still have a long road of healing. But we are getting there!
Enjoy this day!
