Grandparenting Joy

" When first he called me "Sweetheart", My youthful knees grew weak, And that was topped when I heard "wife", For sure, I've reached my peak. Until a tiny voice said, "Mom..." A joy I still recall. But now, the sound of "Grandma" is the sweetest sound of all." Gay Wilson

VERY cute!!! And what a super Grandma you are!!! (and to think, when you first heard you would be a grandma, you tried to figure out what they should call you...and now, they could call you "Boogie" and you could care less! :)

Love you...

Judy, thank you for a NEW Grandma poem for myself to say to my two little ones Layla and Rhianna. Your Grandbaby is so ADORABLE. The times you are able to have with your grandbaby is so important.

Sadly ours live in another state so talking via phone, sending photos and visits when I can but prayerfully they will all move this way this year!!! LORD WILLING!

Love you lots and thanks for sharing.

Dear Judy,
A wonderful, wonderful, quote! It is heartwarming!
I so enjoyed viewing your snowman collection and really appreciated and loved how you told a little bit about each one! Made them all very special! They are all adorable-(I love snowmen too!. I think I liked the one that glowed and holds the little "Joy" banner. "Joy" is my favorite word reminder--have it everywhere in the cabin!
Also enjoyed your post on the Christmas open house--I understand just how you feel. So thankful for friends with those kinds of gifts, making things so nice and special for us!
Have a wonderful day and Blessings to You!
