“I just think that giving a child a chance and sharing what you have with a child is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, as well as a child.”  Hillary Clinton

We arrived at my Son’s today.  

I promised Chloe that we’d spend New Years with her, and have a fondue party.  We did that last  year at our home in Canada – she remembers it and wanted to do it again.  Since we didn’t spend Christmas with them, we opened presents shortly after we arrived.  I have to say that I think this particular present was perhaps the most special one I’ve received this year.  Her Mommy said that she did this all herself . . . no prompting from her at all.  She wrapped a sheet of stickers in kleenex, taped it up with more stickers, and wrote Grandma Beth on it.  I love it!  

Truly from the heart.

“Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.  Grandparents sort of sprinkle startdust over the lives of little children.”  Alex Haley 

My beautiful little almost-2-year-old Grand Daughter has come to visit with her Mommie for a week.  If you’ve read previous posts, we had her here for three weeks last winter while her Daddy had open heart surgery.  I am so excited that Mommie has decided to spend her vacation time here in Canada with Papa G and Ya Ya.  She absolutely loves her baths . . . in fact she is a water baby – loves anything that involves water – even the rain!  She is an absolute delight.  I love the sound of her laughter ringing through the house.  It’s going to be a fun week ahead!

“Taking ‘you’ time is crucial and should be guilt free!”  Alice D. Domar, Phd

I arrived at my Daughter’s in the San Francisco Bay Area last night.  Temps here are in the high 80’s to mid 90’s.  It’s warm!  First order of business . . . a pedicure so I can wear my sandals without shame!  Seriously overdue, and felt so good to sit back and vegetate for an hour doing nothing.  ahhhhhhh!!!!!!

“A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.”  Lois Wyse

One of the most joyful things in my life these days is waking up in the morning with a Little snuggled in to me!  I’m at my Son’s in Oregon, and am up first thing this morning to drive 12 hours to the San Francisco Bay Area to visit more grandkids.  I didn’t want to get up too early though, and not say goodbye to my Granddaughter.  She’s been sleeping with me every night since I arrived in Oregon.  So how special was it to wake up and find her snuggled right in to me?  I used my iPad to carefully snap this shot . . . so as not to wake her.  I might have said this before . . . but I love my life!

“In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.”  Friedrich Nietzche 

I’m hanging out with my granddaughter, playing in the pool and just being goofy.  We had been to a Ren Faire where the Queen bestowed this beautiful golden necklace on her . . . so she bestowed it upon me!  I love being a Grandmother!
