As always, I have so much to be thankful for. It's true, far more than I deserve. One of my greatest joys next to my Savior, my husband and daughters, is my mom. My girls call her Granny.
Granny is so special to us. We have the blessing of being next door neighbors. We were thrilled when my parents decided to build a house right next to ours. But, even though we live next door, we don't see each other nearly enough. So, since my Dad is on a church trip this week we have Granny all to ourselves. Delight! "Can Granny come over and play???"
Last night Mom came over for dinner. While I was finishing up in the kitchen I heard loud giggles, screams of joy, and car sounds. As the sounds of joy and laughter grew and grew, I just had to see what my girls and Granny were doing. This is what I discovered:
A few minutes later they were teaching Granny another new skill:
Guitar Hero. Just look at that concentration!
Rock on Granny!
I can't describe in words how much my mom means to me.
She is a beautiful example of who I want to be like because she strives to look just like Jesus every day. She is gracious beyond compare, full of wisdom, bold and courageous (she starts a new job in 2 weeks!), she loves her family fiercely, she's one of my best friends, an incredible gardener, seamstress, Sunday school teacher, and pastor's wife, and the best Granny we could ask for!
I could go on and on, but my mascara is starting to run. I think you get the picture. We thank God for Granny (Grandpa too of course) and for the special fun we are having this week.
