We have found lots of ways to turn things into smiles as we traverse this journey.  It’s not always easy, but the results are definitely worth while.  Last night, a case in point after a pretty rough start earlier in the day…

We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to care for our youngest grandchild last night for a few hours.  His face lights up when he sees us and especially when he connects with Grandma Great!  Those brief moments of touch and more.

He’s too big and squirmy for her to hold for long now, but he reached out and held on to a finger for a few seconds and the joy in her face and voice were well worth it.  She avidly watched as he rolled on the floor chasing his toys from one side of the room to the other.  She was delighted even more when he rolled to her feet and tickled her toes through her slippers.

I’ve no doubt that memories from long ago as we were all growing up were brought back to mind.  Her smiles lasted the rest of the night and even as she laid her head on her pillow for one last hug for the day and a kiss….
