She wakes with a smile on her face as bright as the sunshine outdoors.
"Grandma, I love you."
These words melt my heart.
All the stress of our life move floats away as I see her smile and feel her presence.
She brings me Teddy who needs fixing.
His bell fell off during her first sleepover.
Grandma fixes that.
My mind floats back to my childhood.
I feel Nonnie's hand in mine during our morning rituals.
I turn the clock back to today:
The taste of hot chocolate, sweet berries, peanut butter on toast.
I shall remember this first sleepover with delight after a year of virtual happenings.
Being a grandmother is a joy that opens a new world of surprise and wonder.
I am filled with delight.
I breathe in the freshness of spring and hold her little hand,
Realizing the grandness of one cherished word, "Grandma".
