The same way I have a married grandkid. It's weird how we don't age and they do...

I went out to a very popular buffet style restaurant last evening and a "Grandma" and young lad were seated at the next table where I could just hear them and observe them during their meal.

From the looks of it, I don't know if the Grandmother or the boy were having the best time. Quite often, heads leaned together, talking almost non-stop. Lots of laughing and the youngsters sincere and wide-eyed enthusiasm in explaining his thoughts to his Grandma made me grin from ear to ear many times.

What a wonderful relationship they had! It did my heart good. When I get disgusted with mankind's often nasty dealings with one-another, seeing a few minutes of this type of relationship heals all my anger and frustrations.

It was a true Norman Rockwell moment.

Sweet, Tim! Snicker and Babe, kindergarten always seems to be harder on the parents than the child...

Tim hold those thoughts. I wish you could see my Cade and I when we are together. He was with me every day when I was so sick and in the hospital. He refused offers for movies, game parties just to sit at my side as I slept and would hold my hand. He is my greatest love and he is so good to me. How do we manage to go without those sweet faces during their days at school. Guess we just remember LOVE.

What a wonderful young person he must be! There is no medicine in the world that can replace love or it's effects on our hearts and minds.

When someone tells me that our world is going to hell, I always tell them that it is most certainly not. It's going to our children who will make it better than we did.

Funny how we feel sad when they are able to go off to school. It is almost a relief when they have a great day. I'm glad she had a good time. It will seem like next week when she is old enough to be graduating from HS, so enjoy it all!!
