The joy of being Oma....


I look forward to little britches and I...
spending time looking at the clouds...

seeing what he sees in the clouds....

hearing what shapes...faces...animals...
he might see...

he sees the jets...the birds...the clouds now...

we say Hi and wave to the jets....the birds...the sun..
but soon we will be having long...fun...exciting...
conversations about them....
and I will take the time to enjoy it...
not rush through it because dinner needs to be cooked...
laundry needs to be folded...
we are running late for something...
that is the joy of being Oma...
you realize what is most important...

You have the right idea sweet Deb. Enjoy every second with that precious Little Britches for he will be grown with a family of is own much too soon. The little ones are just so precious and those who are blessed to have a grandparent like you are not enough. Love that little guy with all the time and what you have in you. I know you will. Hugs

It is a joy. Reminds me of a little poem.

There will be years for cooking and cleaning, for children grow up while we are not looking.

Where already to naming them and discussing... have some very interesting discussions too, I might add.
