Just Like A Scene Out Of A Movie...

I have no photograph to go with this post, but oh how I wish I did!  With or without a photo, I just had to tell you what I experienced one day last week!

The weather was pretty nice, and I was actually feeling good, too.  It was just before lunchtime when I decided to take a brief walk down the road and back.  I felt sure I could use some fresh air and exercise.  Did I happen to mention that our little grandson, Caden, lives at the end the road?

I'd made my way about three-fourths of the way toward the end of the road, when suddenly I looked up to see a tiny body running in my direction!  It was Caden, and he was running toward me as fast as his little legs would carry him.  It was just like a scene out of a movie...The theme from "Chariots of Fire" began to play in my head!

Apparently, someone was very excited to see me--and he made me feel so loved and appreciated.  I continued to smile for the rest of the afternoon, as I later spent some time watching granddaughter, Madison, playing outside in her yard...  Aren't grandchildren one of God's most wonderful gifts?

I smiled at the thought of your grandson running towards you. I experience the joy with my day care children. It makes you glow inside. My boys are too young to become parents. So I will have to wait until I feel that love of a grandparent. Right now I will enjoy the teenage years before my boys become men.

Aww...how sweet. I could picture it in my mind. That had to be a great feeling knowing that he was happy and excited to be seeing Mimi. :-)
