How can I say goodbye...

As July comes to an end, I reflect and feel gratitude for a wonderful month spent with our son and his family who came to visit and spend the entire month with us. We only have two more precious days together and then they leave us again.

 Sweet memories fill my heart...

How can I forget...
"Yellow Eggs" in the morning.


How can I forget...
His world of quiet imagination.


How can I forget...
These little hands.


How can I forget...
Ice cream with "Abuelito"


How can I forget...
Stops at Dairy Queen.


How can I forget...
What it is like to be 13.



How can I forget...
What the world looks like through his eyes.


How can I forget...
His curiosity.

And now I must prepare to say goodbye, but I am not yet ready.

Catherine,
That is so beautiful. You captured so well what it means to be a REAL grandparent. I am sure you are a huge gift to all your grandchildren.
Hugs and admiration, dear person!

It is so difficult living apart...in my case I am the daughter with the precious grandkids who is away. Go home is always bittersweet even before you get there.
