small blessings

smiles and giggles
playing prisoner
till released

mindful anticipation
learning new game
directed energy

little hands warm mine
exploring outdoors
in wonder

quiet cozy moments
reading favorites
with blanket

words in unison
praying aloud
by memory

for every little blessing
we give thanks,

    Small blessings indeed, Lynn! I’m off to see my grandchildren on Thursday and I’m staying for a whole week, so plenty of smiles and giggles, and cuddles with the newest one who is only a month old. I’m also going to see the four-year-old in his first nativity play – he’s the little donkey!

    Love those tender moments you share with your grandchild. Really can’t think of anything more precious than a child exploring their world under the guidance of a loving grandparent ❤
