I worked long, long hours last week and had several evening activities. By the time Saturday came along I was pretty worn out. I had piles of laundry and a lot of other things I needed to do at home. I was up early and accomplished some of those tasks but I dropped it because I was invited to join my daughter and granddaughters for a trip to the library for story time.
The little girls are so precious to me. I realize how very, very blessed I am to have them close by. To be able to be a part of their daily lives is something many grandparents do not get. Now that I have these little ones, I realize what we were unable to give our own children and their grandmas... time...lots of time together. That makes me sad but it also makes me cautiously guard what I've been given. I never want to put housecleaning or any other tasks before that precious time.
