Motherhood has an extra blessing attached, it is called Grandmotherhood! What I did not seem to have time for when my own children were small, I seem to have all the time in the world for, with my grandchildren. For some reason when they come into my house all motion ceases. I don’t know why this occurs, it just does.
When you are in the motherhood stage seems you are always trying to get things done. But I am finding in the grandmother stage some things are more important than what you think needs to get done. Also I think, all the sudden, you are hit with the realization of how quickly life is passing by, especially when you are staring into the eyes of a child of your child.
I always heard how wonderful grandparenting was, but until I actuallly held my first grandchild in my arms I was not totally a believer. I am a believer now, it really is as wonderful as you hear and even more fulfilling than you can imagine.
Thank you Lord for my sweet grandchildren and for all that they have added to my life!
