Being a Grammie is such a joy to my soul. I can hear my grandkids say, "Grammie watch this". I never had a Grandma that I knew. Only one was alive and she lived out of state. I saw her once in my lifetime and I can't really remembering anything but she was old. Just hearing the word grandma we might think of old but I am old. I have purpose to go the extra mile for my grandkids and share in the joys of any moment I can get. Life is way too short and lets make the best of everyday of life.
Proverbs 22:6-8 King James Version (KJV)Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Disneyland is about children and the kid that lives in each of us. I also seeing smiling faces and the joys of a grandma holding her grandchild. I see the joys of kids eating cotton candy, ice cream, or getting a balloon. The kid inside of me can't sleep at night while I am hear because I'm excited about the next day. Even the next day when we go home because we will see family and friends. The happiest place on earth lives inside of me and the love of Jesus shines through me. Yet, I am human and have a human side of life too. Nothing is too big for God and I believe in miracles.
We are celebrating the life of my daughter and granddaughter on this trip. One year ago the baby was born and 5 days later, my daughter had a brain bleed. Months of recovery and living in a dark room. Today, we are having breakfast with Disneyland Characters and my heart is FULL OF JOY. I have my daughter alive and that's makes me happy. I have my granddaughters with us on this trip and that makes me happy. Life is beyond full right now and I see how God brought us through a hard summer last year. Today we live int today and count blessings of LIFE.
Keeping this short today, but maybe you are in a hard place of life. Last summer I couldn't see the light of the Lord during the first two months of Tracy's illness and never thought that last summer would end. But it did end and I feel God answered the deepest desires of our hearts which is LIFE.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
