Bliss

Well it is after midnight so I hope this post counts for Monday. My computer says it is Monday. I have trouble talking myself into going to bed. I hate laying there and thinking so I fight it. In the morning, I hate having to get up. Here I am posting only a few hours after I did my last post and procrastinating about climbing into bed. I usually wait until I know that I can`t keep my eyes open another minute. The funny thing about all that is I can`t really turn the thinking off anyway. I was thinking about my last post and how I can tend to grasp onto the negative instead of just letting it go and how I let that negate the positive.

The truth is that I did have a really nice afternoon and got to spend some quality time with Noah. We watched television together. He told me everything that was happening in the show so as to make sure that I understood and that I would be able to laugh at all the funny parts. We took Frankie out for a nice long walk. It was just the three of us, me, Noah and Frankie. It was fun to see his fear of a little puppy turn into interest and him starting to like her. The air was fresh and the autumn leaves smelled so good. The sun was shining. The cool air felt good on my cheeks. We chit chatted. He has so much that he wants to tell me and teach me. It is so lovely to see the world through his eyes. He drew nice pictures for me when we came inside and he beat up on me a bit which is his way of showing affection. If his feet are in your face, he loves you. I rocked Abby to sleep. She is such a doll. She is not usually a cuddlier so it is so sweet when she relaxes and falls asleep in my arms. I love them so much that my heart feels like it is about to burst. It is a nice feeling.

Sounds like the positives in your day were pretty wonderful. nothing like time with the grandkids to make a bad day good.

Ahhh, how sweet!
I love spending time with little kids. Especially toddlers. Especially if they happen to be my grandchildren. Or anybody's grandchildren for that matter.
And you haven't killed Frankie yet or given her away, so that's a good thing. She must be settling in?

Noah loved it. He loves it when his Grandmas come to visit and take him for walks. Especially by himself. He knows when he has your undivided attention and eats it up. He always has lots of things to tell you.

And you are very lucky that Abbey cuddled you like that. Fell asleep in your arms, none the less. I can't remember the last time she fell asleep on me.

how important it is to count our blessings. even when we're going through hard times or facing a challenge, we need to remember the good in our lives.

(this is not necessarily directed at you... it's for all of us!)

This heartache you have is the best kind. I can't wait to be a grandma.

I'm so glad you had a chance to share this time with them, and that they brought a bit of sunshine your way.
