And I say...it's all right...
...or at least it will be soon.
My little darling's are coming home from vacation after almost two weeks!
Yes, I have been deep in the black pit of Grandlittlelessness. (Yes, that is so a word. Is so. Yes, huh!)
The only thing that has given me a smidgen of hope that they would return is this...
This sweet little styrofoam ball and metallic pipe cleaner sun has been 'loaned' to me by Miss Morgan.
She made it her last week of summer school.
"Gramma," she told me, big blue eyes opened wide with serious intent. "Do you want to 'borrow' my sun?"
"No, sweetie, you can just take your sun home, okay?"
"Gramma. I think you should hang the sun on your wall with your other suns. I don't know how you can hang it because it sticks out in the back!"
"Morgan, I'm sure I can figure out how to hang it...but are you sure you don't want to take it home for Mommy?"
"Gramma. I'm sure. You can borrow it for maybe...oh... 40 days and 40 nights (can you tell she goes to a Christian preschool?) ...but I might want it back then."
"Okay, Morgan. I will be happy to borrow it for 40 days and 40 nights. I will think of you whenever I look at it, okay?"
She smiled her sweet, little girl smile and wandered off to wreak destruction on the toy room.
And I have looked at it every day.
And thought how lucky we are to have these three girls active in our everyday lives.
Yes, my friends.
It's been a long, cold lonely thirteen days...
But...here comes the sun...
..and I say...it's all right...
