Without going into specifics let me say that very slowly changes in attitude are happening. During a recent conversation with my Daughter-in-law arrangements were made for her and my Granddaughter with my two Great Grandchildren to come for a visit. My Daughter-in-law (who is a step-mom) lives in Southern California and she will drive to Central California where my Granddaughter lives and they will drive up to Northern California where I live.
AND, IT WAS A WONDERFUL DAY! Totally, pleasurable. However, I was not up to taking any photos. My physical pain level is higher than it has been in a long time. That's a different discussion for another time.
My Granddaughter took a lot of photos and I was delighted to see what she posted on Facebook. She and I have always been close. And, she has always known that I am always there for her. But this really brought tears to my eyes.
"When I was young I used to love exploring the garden surrounding my grandma’s house. She’d take me down to the creek where I’d splash and play during the hot summer days. It was truly something special to see my own kids doing these same things today"
We also went down to the Community Park which is a wonderful park with a huge children's area. They also played in the Creek with their shoes off and had fun "skipping rocks". I wanted to share this today but I'm not feeling up to par so I hope this makes sense.
Have a Great Day.
