Today I am thankful for grandchildren. I have had more laughs, fun, and enjoyment in the last few days than I have had in a month of Sundays (that used to be an expression of my Grandmother's!).
There is nothing like the smile of a one year old to cheer me up! And there is nothing like a having a religious discussion with a five year old. And, best of all, there is the wonderful reward of having an eight year old and a five year old help me cook dinner! They are wonderful! They speed up the preparation process immensely because they have grown up in their parents' kitchen and know how to chop, slice, dice, and cook EVERYTHING! What a joy that has been! The only critical moment came when the eight year old looked at the serving plate and said, "Our dad would have added a bit of garnish before putting that plate on the table." Oh, well! Not everything around here is perfect!
