Seven Little Reasons
We're leaving in the morning and there are seven little reasons it is hard to leave: grandchildren. Six year old Gracie crawled up in my lap a couple nights ago. "Grandma, do you have to go? Grandma, to you want to go? How long will you be gone? How long is 9 weeks?" The answers are easy-no, yes, 2 months, and forever-yet hard to say and harder to hear. Who would have guessed that kissing seven little children goodby would tear your heart right out. God bless you little sweethearts and remember to pray for grammy and grammpy in your bedtime prayers-- as we will you.
