Scene: Grandma rocking little boy, he's half asleep.

Boy: Gramma, you're getting old.

GM: Hmmm, yes, I am.

B: You have those little things on your face.

GM: Hmmmm, yup, I do....(GM thinking-sign me up for the next facelift)

B: "Gramma, I don't want you to leave this earf."

GM: Ok, buddy, I'll be around for awhile I think.....

That stirs up so many emotions in me. :) Isn't it great to be so loved? Isn't it greater to know the "Plan"? Thank Heavens!

One of our family stories: My father's family has the gene of premature graying. When dad was about 43 or so my oldest boy (the oldest grandchild) said to him, "Grandpa, you better pull those gray hairs or you're going to get old!" They use that on me now....oh, how thin my crown would be!
