Oh little one

You are the one

Let me see you crawl

Let me not miss a fall

Talk to me please

Say mommy

Take your first steps to see

Show mommy how big you can be

I will walk you to school

Now remember the golden rule

Your first scratch on knee

Brings tears for me to see

You want to date I do not think

I have to be stern and  take no stink

You have something to tell you say

Oh not it shouldn’t happen this way

Oh look at his fingers and toes

And look at that cute little nose

Precious memories I hold near me

As I bounce him on my knee

Remember all your mama speaks

She wants you strong and not too weak

I have enjoyed my life with you

As I see God has something for me to do

And now I must lay my head down to rest

Remember you are all the best.

In between packing, I am still working hard on seeing the good in life each day. I was involved with my two grand babies for brunch and this brought plenty of smiles and good thoughts. I find that by doing one thing each day at the minimum helps my mourning process of losing Al.

Al always smiled at babies. I always thought somewhere on his mentality level he related to them so well. Although he was here when the oldest was born, he was too ill to ever meet him, and of course he was in heaven when the youngest arrived. 

I am a Grandma of I believe 11 grandchildren, don’t quote me on that. I believe my oldest, a girl, is 21 and the youngest, a girl, is five weeks. I will miss my grandchildren when I leave but I will get to enjoy my one granddaughter more often when I arrive to my new home. I won’t be so far away that I won’t get to see the others so this will be a nice plus.
