OK ….I’m just going to barge right in here and be a pathetic “Poppie” and tell everyone how wonderful my youngest granddaughter, Maya is. It’s her birthday today and she’s two years old. I know when anybody looks at the pictures of their grandkids…well…you know they’re just the epitome of awesomeness. OK…so I don’t want to fall behind everyone else’s awesomeness …I just gotta shout it….SHE’S AWESOME!!!! (Could you hear me?)
I’ve written about her many times, so I won’t bore you with the redundancy of my unflagging, unwavering, undying, and any other “unsomething”!I can think of…to tell you how much I love this little precious chipmunk of ours.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAYA.
I’m so glad you’re in my life. You bring me such joy on those days when I’m don’t feel so joyful. One look at your picture…and my sadness dissipates. It’s kinda like going to the doctor and afterwards you feel better.
I pray you bring that joy to everyone you meet as you live your life. I’m so grateful to your mother, Emily..who is so intentional with you in everything….and to your father, Ben… who provides for you and loves you so beautifully. Girl…I can hardly wait to see you in May. You can pull my cap off as many times as you want….and put fingerprints all over my glasses too. Why? Because those moments I can never get back.
Always thinking of you.
“Child of my child, heart of my heart.
Your smile bridges the years between us…
I am young again, discovering the world through your eyes.
You have the time to listen …
and I have the time to spend.”
