Last week our son and his wife packed their little U-Haul and started the long drive to Oregon.
While they're gone, Mr. Jenny and I are watching our Granddaughters.
The same day the big kids began their drive, the school called. The oldest Grandlittle was sick. I picked her up.
Her freckles stood out like beacons against her very pale skin. She was shaking with a bad headache.
I could sympathize. I've had a headache for a few weeks now and have just been trying to take it as easy as possible.
I brought her home.
And Grandma'd her up.
She had hot tea. She had some toast. She had a few chewable tylenol. We laid in bed and dozed and cuddled.
After a few hours she was feeling a lot better.
I told her I was going to lay down and rest for a little while longer.
Suddenly her face lit up!
"Grandma! I have a great idea! You just lay here! I'll be right back!"
I could hear her in the other room rummaging until finally from the bedroom doorway I heard her say, "Grandma! Close your eyes! I have a GREAT idea!"
When she told me to open my eyes, there she stood.
Grinning from ear to ear.
Holding her student violin!
"Grandma! I know what will help you feel a lot better! You just lay there in bed and I'm going to play you some RELAXING violin music!"
And she started playing.
Relaxing violin music!
Who knew that beginner violin music would be so restful!?!
