Choosing Joy: Grandma's here!

Today, it is not hard to chose JOY at all! My grandmother is here for a one week visit. I feel so blessed that my children can know their great-grandmother...the grandmother that I am told I take after...the grandmother that I had the privilege of living with for a year and a half as a 9 year old girl.

I learned to love reading and cooking from her. I watched her love and serve my grandfather unconditionally and patiently all the way to his passing. She doesn't forget a birthday...every child, grandchild, great-grandchildren and even the spouses get a card and $5 for the children and $10 for the adults. Guaranteed. Oh, and cookies. Always the best cookies... I am filled with JOY today and I will cherish every moment while she's here!
