I am late posting my blog for today. But, better late than never, I suppose.
This past week, I have taken care of my three-year-old granddaughter every day all day long. Believe me when I say I had forgotten the amount of energy and attention they require. I fell behind on everything and dropped into bed exhausted every night. 🙂 All that aside, look at this sweet face.
That day we went to the Crayola Experience. 🙂
Then she has swim lessons every day.
Grasping at ideas for an activity, we painted sea shells. She loved this a lot.
I will have her again this coming week, then she will be back in school. While these are exhausting days, I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
The other day, she said to me, “Mimi, remember before you were born that I was your grandmother?” Wow! That floored me. Who knows. Maybe she was.
And to go along with this theme today, here is a poem and artwork from Rick.
LITTLE GIRLS AND ROSES
Roses are like pretty little girls
Petals swirling, lovely curls
Sweetly blushes the scented roses
Angel cheeks, buds like little noses
Tender fragile blooming at random
Prettiest ones are where you find them
Dew kissed angels from above
Rare beauties symbols of love
Delicate and soft seem they fantasy
Charming warmth assures reality
Thankful am I that both grows
Pretty little girls and the beautiful rose
Make it a great day, everyone!
