Oh Rachel, this is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing your heart.

Believe it or not, it’s even more amazing the second time around with grands! Oh, and in response to your post on Friday:
Big A, little a, what begins with a? Aunt Annie’s alligator…a, a, a!…
Big Y little Y yawning yellow yak…young Yolanda Yorgenson is yelling on his back!
Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

Oh…and then there’s “Grandma Tildy lived all alone. She worked hard every day! She had no time to play! On day a man came to her house. He was selling pets! “Would you like to buy a canary bird?” asked the man? “Okay” said Grandma Tildy, “but NO ELEPHANTS!”
Thank you for this. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
Absolutely beautiful. I will have to bookmark this.
Another perfect post that hits home. This is a favorite.
