Joy

Want to know the meaning of JOY? True love? I never really knew this until today --when I held my grandson in my arms, for the first time.
I know all mothers feel an undying connection to their child but this is so different. As a mother, you have the power or control to mold and shape your child's future. As a grandmother you can only suggest or guide. It also seems as a mother you see the future as lessons that need to be taught and to resolve any conflicts that might surround your precious one. As a grandparent you realize these facts but are able to be there in a supporting role.... But get to spoil him rotten!!
You have done your best as a parent and all the hard work and happy times are now a living proof that is placed into your arms and is called 'grandchild'

It is so strange to see the similarity between YOUR child, and HIS child.
