Thanks for the follow. Nice connecting with you. Wishing you joy in all you do.Today I watched my two year old grandson for the day. He’s a bit ill but one or two doses of antibiotics and he feels a little better.
It is always such a joy for me to have my grandchilden. Today he kept me particularly busy. We went upstairs to get something. As we stood at the top of the stairs he said “I jump.” He didn’t, but my heart almost jumped out of me.
Earlier we had gone to the grocery store. As I was picking him up and putting him in the shopping cart, I guess I made a groan. He looked at me and said, “I too heavy.”
It made me laugh, thinking, only a two year old little boy could say without a flinch that he was too heavy. All of us women say it with such despondency.
Nap time arrived, I got his bottle and showed it to him. He knows the drill, so he was on his way into the bedroom when a strange thing happened. He did not go into the bedroom but he went into my office and walked up to my rocking chair.
We have not cuddled, with him having a bottle in my arms, since he was a baby. What a joy I felt getting into the chair, him lying on my lap, and me watching him drink his bottle.
As the milk was emptying into his tummy his eyes were blinking” the soon my eyes will be closed” blinking look. Sure enough the bottle feel from his mouth and his eyes were closed.
I stared at his curly blonde hair and rosy cheeks and felt pure love in my heart. Carefully, I placed my check on his and could feel the warmth of his check against mine. His face looked like that of a precious, innocent angel. I wondered what he would look like when is about ten years old.
But, my thoughts quickly went back to the moment. I wanted to hold on to it and cherish it forever. I wanted to put it in my memory bank to have forever. And when times are not so peaceful and loving, I can bring back this moment, and remember this feeling of peace and love and joy.
