Grandparents

My grandparents were the center of my life as a child. I saw them daily and while they never took me to Disney nor do I believe even a local fair they did everyday things with me, read books to me, treated me to ice cream on a steamy Summer evening, took me fishing, held my bike seat level while I learned to balance and glide away from what would be the last lesson I would ever need in learning to ride a bike and amongst all of this and more, was knowing even when the words were not spoken that you were loved and safe.

It will always be the simple things in life that you remember about those you love and treasure. As I spent a weekend with grandchildren, they didn't go to Disney either, but they did have a country pool party, were treated to ice cream on a steamy Summer evening, were read to, herded a calf back to its mother (ask them about it....it was a highlight), traversed the playground not missing an opportunity as they were pushed on swings and encouraged to try the big kid slides, learned to play new board games and were hugged and treasured.

In the end feeling loved and safe........may be all we really want or need.
