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.
