At least three days a week, I have fun. I learn new things, I see clearer, I feel hopeful.
At least three days a week, my faith is stronger and I have bigger dreams and aspirations.
I feel loved, appreciated, truly honored.
I make a difference, and there are little eyes looking up to me, following my example.
I take my job very seriously. It's a most important job, oh, I'm still parenting although my kids are way grown-up, I am helping them parent!.
I am now becoming the matriarch, gradually inheriting this esteemed position after being silently, subconsciously tutored throughout my lifetime, by my sweet mother, mother-in-laws, and grandmother's excellent examples, triumphs and mistakes. I must be sometimes strong and firm, sometimes soft and tender. Someone small totally depends on me, so I must be wise and gentle too,
Because, at least three days a week I spend with a dear little child,my grandson.
And the other four days of the week I go about my business, working and playing, growing and learning, day by day, finding a balance and purpose in my life, praying for God to show me the way to do it all and let His love shine through me.
I know I am so blessed, and that the best is yet to come. Being a grandma is the richest, most satisfying role I've ever had in my life!.
