I have rediscovered something I have always known, or maybe had a reminder of what is truly important in life, that is love.
Can you imagine a situation in which someone can spit up on you, even throw up on you, or drool all over the front of your shirt to the point you have a big wet spot on it and you don’t mind in the least little bit.. I can, I am experiencing it now. Can you imagine sitting and loving every moment of time as a 3 year old patiently teaches you how to put together a jig saw puzzle. This is the life I am currently living and it is wonderful. No, somehow the word wonderful doesn’t come close to describing my feelings.
Grandchildren are such a precious gift, I am such a lucky man. The sad part for me is that my grandchildren live so very far away from me, not sure but it must be something like 1,000 miles., I am not sure maybe because I don’t get to see them it magnifies the wonder of the time I can share with them. I am not sure of that as some how I just can’t imagine feeling any differently even if I saw them everyday.
Can a simple smile light up your day? YES, it can!!!! Just a single little smile from my 2 little princesses and this grandpa turns to total mush inside, every care or thought in the world suddenly just vanishes. Often I have written of the power of a simple smile, asking for them to be passed on to others. I can certainly attest to the power of the smile.
Every night when I go to bed I have such a warm fluffy feeling inside, it is wonderful. There has been a time or two as I lay there at night when niggling little thoughts enter my head. Sad thoughts, that this may well be the last time I see my little princesses or be blessed by one of those wonderous smiles. I do my best to immediately push those thoughts away I am not going to let thoughts of tomorrow spoil or even affect my today
