I love photographs. If you come to my house, you will see pictures of my girls and my grandyoungin's EVERYWHERE! I love new pictures, but can't bear to put the old ones away. I just have to find new places for them all.
I spent last night putting the new photos up because as you know, I have a new little grandson and he is so precious! I then had to move the not-so-new ones to a different spot and then find places for the ones that those replaced. A little of my OCD was goin' on about then and I had to stop and take a deep breath and get my game plan worked out! I promise you, I am not crazy...
I just love looking at pictures of my girls when they were babies. I wish I could just hold those sweet babies one more time. Kiss those sweet little cheeks. Kiss those sweet little feet. Oh, to be able to rock them just one more time. I miss those times.
I think that is why we who are grandparents just love our little grandbabies so much. We know just how fast they grow up . We know just how fast time flies by. We know that you can never get these sweet moments back and that you have to cherish them and embrace them while you can.
God has been so good to me. He has blessed me with precious daughters and I praise Him for who they are in Christ and I praise Him that they love me with unconditional love. I have been blessed beyond measure with my precious little grandchildren. They are the joy of my heart. They put the sparkle in my eyes. They give me things to look forward to. I love to hear their sweet voices say 'Nana'. I love to feel those sweet little arms wrap around me in a hug.
If I could do it all over again, I would cherish my girls even more when they were young. I would never wish away their childhoods. I would slow down more and play more and hug more and embrace more. I would be more thankful. I would be more patient.
I think that's why we love to spend time with our grandchildren. It gives us those times back. It gives us the opportunity to hug our children again through their children. We can relive those special times and remember how blessed we were to have the chance to be their parents.
"Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children." Proverbs 17:6
