Another Season


It's hard to believe that our little grandson, Sam, is growing and learning so fast. The picture on the right of my blog is me holding Sam for the first time almost a year ago. That was the day I stepped into a new season of my life - I'm now known to one as "Grammy". With one foot still planted firmly in the "being a mom" season (not an empty-nest yet:), I embarked on a whole new experience.

We are looking forward to Sam's first birthday in a couple of weeks.

To watch a baby grow and learn is a wonderful experience. Being the mother of six, it's not unfamiliar to me. Still, with each one, it's like it's all new again. Nothing fascinates me more than to watch a little one learn about the world around him, and then see his/her responses as they figure things out.

I came across these pictures of Amanda and Sam playing peek-a-boo. At this tender young age, Sam could interact and play a game. No matter how many times I witness this, it amazing every time. Come next March I will be privileged to become Grammy to another precious little one. How blessed am I.

We are wonderfully made by our Creator... If we feel so much love in our hearts for our children and grandchildren, think how God feels about us, His children.
"Amazing Love, how can it be?..."

Signed: One happy Mom and Grammy --and child of God:)

I'm also fascinated with babies and look forward to being a Grandma one day. The relationship between children and grandparents is very special.
