June will be a month of miracles for me. I will be flying to Madison, Wisconsin to be with my daughter Aria as she gives birth to her first child, my first grandchild. In preparation for being away all of June, I have organized and pre written all my blogposts for this month. I will try to take advantage of this time to catch up with things I have failed to blog about before. At the same time I would like to start off the month with this poem which seems to say what I have in my Grandma-to-be heart.
Happy month of June everyone!
A month of miracles for our family and I hope for yours too!
A Grandma's Wish
" If I were granted just one wish, I'll tell you what I'd do
I'd wish my kids were small again,for just a month or two.
To hear their squeals of laughter, to watch them when they play,
And when they ask me to join in, I'd NOT say, "not today."
To hug again their chubby frame, to kiss away their tears,
And cherish childhood innocence that's washed away the years.
Then when it's story time again, I'd stay a little longer,
To answer questions, sing their songs, so memories would be stronger.
But time is callous, wishes, myth, yet God in all his wisdom,
Has given me another chance, before I join his kingdom.
The face may not be just the same, the name is changed, 'tis true,
But yet the smile that radiates, reminds me so of you.
God must have known that grandma, would need a chance or two,
For many little happy things, she hadn't time to do.
So God gave love to Grandmas, to equal that before,
That in effect embraces, those little lives she bore." -Author unknown
