Love Bug had a big day. Blue Play Doh (Who’da thunk that Grammy could make play doh???) and weeding in the garden with Grandpa. Riding the Golf cart and cutting and pasting and coloring. Watching the movie “Madeline” for the first time, and “Milo and Otis” twice in one weekend. Taking a bath and making a glorious mess with the colors for the bath and the tablets to make the water a funny color. A story and a prayer and the songs from Mommy’s childhood, “You’re Something Special” and “Jesus, I heard you had a Big House” and “Good-night, My Father, Put Thoughts of Jesus in My Head.” Torre, here to spend the night, listened from her mattress on the floor, while Grammy prayed that the words would sink into her hungry heart and take root. Love Bug was asleep before the last song was done, and Torre turned her light out soon. Two girlies, both so precious.
Oh, Lord Jesus. “Put Angels all around all our beds.”
One response to “”
It is so sweet that you call that lil’ grandgirl “Love Bug”! You brought back memories when you mentioned Milo and Otis – we took the kids to see it at the theater when Pamela was 3. When we drove home, she already had the theme song memorized!
