You know that look, when you see someone who you haven't seen for a while, and even though one of you is 90 and one is only 4 years old, you remember each other. It's unmistakable, it's the look of love.
That's what I saw with Tanner and my mother, his great-grandmother. Sometimes, I'm not even sure if she remember's me, but, when she looked at this sweet boy, she remembered him.
They checked out a few pictures on the phone, I'm pretty sure it was a photo of the two of them...I think they liked it!
They shared a hug . . .
Grandma's feet were cold, but not to worry, Tanner and mom were more than happy to rub them for her.
Secrets were shared, and good-byes were said.
A few hugs and kisses for the road, and we were off.
After our visit we went to lunch, grilled cheese and apple slices were on the menu for Tanner, a quick check of mom's cell phone, and he was ready to make some more smiles!! All in a days work for this little man!
I'm not sure how many more visits my dear mother will get from this little guy, her life is slipping away...and his is just beginning. Hopefully through photos and blog posts, he will never forget his great-grandma.
This was a memorable day for all of us! I love these days when we can make memories and fill our hearts and minds with love. Go make some memories this week, have fun and be safe!
Hugs and Love,
