Key to Happiness #1

Three-year old singing with his heart and soul!

My number one source of happiness comes when I am  with my grandson.  We see each other at least once a week and I am enthralled when we are together. He is funny, smart and engaging. I am funny, encouraging and willing to teach as well as learn.

This young person makes me laugh, makes me question “why I do things that way”, offers insight from 36 inches off the floor and remembers everything I say.

In the course of 30 minutes, you can find us playing hide and seek, wearing bandanas and cowboy boots, playing with cars and making towers that we can knock down with pillows.

We have our favorite libraries and playgrounds and we are always open and ready to try one more.

His presence allows me to have a ‘Do Over’ where I can get it right this time. Even though I was from a large family, I still had to learn the art of motherhood as I went along. There are some things I wished I had done differently and with my grandson in my life, I get to apply the wisdom I’ve acquired!

In this photo (umm, yes, I always have my camera ready!) he is singing me some wonderful song as he stands atop the stage (he’s on the picnic table) for the whole world to see. I have a huge grin every time I see this picture. Click the photo to see a larger image.

So many more things to share with you – Hope you liked this one!

  1. Wonderful!

    Not having any children of my own, the feeling is unimaginable. I can only try to understand, but it’s a lovely, happy picture of the little guy 😀
