I think this child could ask me for anything and I would try my level best to provide it. She is my youngest granddaughter. The daughter of my one and only son. I don’t know how this much love can be contained in one nana’s heart. And yes, she now says “nana,” and knows it is me. She knows my house and said “nana!” when she and her mom drove up today. And then I got to take her home to her dad, who has just returned from a 2 week trip in a southeastern state. As we drove up to her house, she said “mommy! daddy!” Oh goodness.
I spent the early evening on the road. After having a nice dinner with my boss, I am settling into my hotel room, hoping to sleep soon. It shouldn’t be much of a problem, after getting up this morning at 4, and taking care of an active child most of the day.
I am so grateful to have these relationships. I have not a doubt in the world that my son would not trust me with his beloved daughter if I were drinking. I have not a doubt in the world that I would have told my boss to “f*** off” a couple of weeks ago when she told me that. But instead, I get to have a lovely Sunday with these people.
I don’t have my Bible with me – what’s a blogger to do? Oh, I have a Bible app on my phone….
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, cannot love God whom he hath not seen. –1 John 4:20 (American Standard Version)
