Grandma Truths

How can it be that someone so very small can touch your heart in such a very big way?

How can it be that seeing things through their eyes is like seeing them for the first time--
all over again?

And how can it be that this happens over and over again with each new grandchild?

How can it be that one's heart can sing so loudly with joy
 when you see your grandchild loving the same things you also hold dear?

or when something small you do makes your little one smile?

How can it be that one can be this blessed?
How can one deserve the gift of love they bring our way?
How can it be that it seems they give more to us than we could ever give to them?

But, oh how can one's heart break in two when we must say goodbye to the
 little ones that have stolen our hearts:(
Missing all of my grandchildren today;
sending you my love everyday!
May God bless and keep you till we meet again
(and may that be very, very soon).
Blessings,
Grandma Aimee

There is nothing I love more than being at the beach with my grandchildren. We are on the same wave length, Aimee. My current post shows my kids and grandkids at the beach. Those trips are among their favorite memories too.

My 2 beloved granddaughters are 2000 miles away and I haven't seen them since September. My heart breaks every single day. Enjoy yours. Hugs, T

Dear Teresa~
I know your pain and I wish that I could somehow lessen it. I pray that God will comfort you and somehow make a way for you to see those cute granddaughters of yours. Know that I am thinking of you today and that I am sending hugs your way.
Regarding my sweet ones...they left earlier this week :(
Blessings,
Aimee
