Thankful, Grateful & Blessed……

After a Sunday morning rain which we needed desperately, the mist cleared and the sun came out.  The grapevines hanging over my porch were glistening in the sunlight and when I walked out  the air was sweetened with the scent of Concord grapes.  I  closed my eyes and  felt so thankful for everything and everyone in my life.  I took a ride out to Colchester to visit my son Gordon his wife Alyssa and my eight month old grand-daughter Cora.  As I enter their living room, I looked over to the far corner of the room and saw two big brown eyes, hands, and spiky tiny dark brown pigtails peering over the edge of the pack-and-play.  She had an ear to ear smile and her eyes were glistening with happiness as I approached her.  How could this be!?  She was just born!  She is standing, cruising and squealing with delight.  I picked her up, kissed her and held her tight whispering Nonna, Nonna in her tiny ear.   I am so grateful that she is in my life.  For the next hour I repeated these three actions.  I held her, I showered her with kisses and we laughed together.  My son and his family have brought me so much joy by sharing their hopes and their dreams with me.   I am so blessed to be a part of it….  I hope your Sunday was a happy one too.
