Tonight I feel so blessed. I called my son to chat and Abby was not yet asleep. She was ready for bed, looking at a book. My son and his wife let her look at story books before she goes to bed.They read her stories and then let her have a book to look at as she falls asleep. I used to read to my children then put on music for them to listen to as they drifted off to sleep. Any way, my little girl was not yet asleep , so my son let me talk to her. My Abby said "Gramma, love you." She was repeating what my son said to her , but I was so thrilled non the less. I'm going to have to call more often. She is the light of my life right now. Along with my kids. I'm so thankful for the love of a precious grandchild.

I can actually feel the warmth you felt just talking to her over the phone.

Since he was little, I used to read to my son before bedtime and sometimes talked for quite a bit, answer his many questions until my wife asked me to stop.

Now ten years on, I still do tuck him to bed and talk to him before he goes to sleep.

And still today, my wife will always remind me to stop and let him go to sleep.

Wonderful little moments, wonderful life with our loved ones.

Enjoy your weekend!
