it's all in the name

letter g

i have many titles & names
along with my given name;
i am a daughter, sister and friend.

i am a wife and i am a mother-
i never could have imagined
the love i feel for my husband and
our three daughters (and son in laws)

and yes, i have another name
that when spoken by two little boys
melts my heart and turns me into mush...
that name is:
granny.

i will never be the same-
the love i have for my grandsons
is amazing, deep and strong,
it rocks me to the core.

a granny's love

i am grateful, oh so grateful.

Lovely post my friend. I am so grateful as well! I have had Eli & Ruby here all day today (and yesterday, and again tomorrow) and they vie for my attention, so that all day, it's "grandma, grandma!" How lucky are we?!

I loved that! I have a daughter old enough to make me a grandmother, but although I want her to take her time to get there...my husband and I secretly can't wait to mark that milestone! :) Beautiful blog :) Happy A to Z! :)

I've been a Granny for a month, almost. :)

So wish that we lived close so that our grandson would know us. :( I've only seen him twice, for 2 short visits.

Can't wait until he grows up a bit and can talk. Wondering what my son and daughter-in-law will have him call us.


:) :) :)
