Porch Time with Granny

Today's gift is porch time with Granny.

There is nothing like sitting on the screened in porch on a nice day.  My daughter loves being outside, so when we added our porch three years ago, we knew it was going to be one of her favorite places....and we were right.

She loves the fresh air (even when it is 90 out!).  She loves listening to nature.  She loves feeling the cool breeze when you are sitting still enough to actually feel it on a warm day.  She loves the super comfortable chairs we have on the porch and sometimes will fall asleep in them...who can blame her!

She just loves being outside.

There is someone else who will sit outside with her for hours too and share the moment with her.  Her Granny.

Her Granny also spoils her and will rub her legs while they are sitting outside.  But she deserves it!

I love listening to their conversations out on the porch.  They talk about their day, what they hear, who they see and everything in between.  Sometimes they even play a game of Connect 4!  It is a great bonding time the two of them share.

And while they are bonding, I am able to get some things around the house done or get dinner started.  It is a win win for all of us.

All of my children are very blessed that they have FIVE  "GRANDS" and TWO "GREAT-GRANDS" who are a part of their lives.   I always want them to know how important family is and how lucky they are to have this time with their grandparents and great-grandparents.  Seeing my children spend time with their grandparents and great-grandmothers is a wonderful thing to see, but it is extra special watching the bond between my daughter with special needs and her grandparents and great-grandmothers.   I can not wait for the day when she can tell me all the wonderful memories she remembers from spending time with them!

Here is a quote for today....

The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you- Author Unknown
