To have a whole day with a granddaughter, doing what we love to do. What a joy! She brought books and games. As we drove home from her house in Mississippi, she read to me. As she lay down to sleep, she read to me and then I read to her. Then we had our favorite bedtime ritual of me rubbing her back and singing softly to her. This was after Richard took us both on a movie and dinner date.
When she wakes, we have decisions to make. How much time do we want to spend at the grocery store buying the ingredients for her favorite foods that we cook together, lasagna and the chocolate cake that I promised her for her February birthday? We still haven't played any of the games she brought, and we only have the one day.
I see her stirring...gotta go be Granny.
