A grandmother's Love

Sometimes things happen that make me remember that life is worth living This photo is one of them.

This is my son with his daughter. It was the first time he has seen her in several years. He lives here in Virginia and his daughter is in California. Let's just say him and her mother are not on the best of terms and leave it at that. Unfortunately in the course of that bitterness he has not been able to see his daughter. He has been working in CA. for awhile now but hasn't seen his little one. Finally yesterday her mom agreed to bring her and her older sister down (who is not his but he still loves) for a visit. She has remarried and brought along her new husband. My son said the visit went very smoothly, and hopefully there will be more to come.
Of course all the family here was thrilled for him. I have never seen my grand daughter except in photos. The distance and the money to get there is what keeps me from her. When I saw this photo last night and heard the excitement in my son's voice when he called to tell me about his time with her, my heart swelled. For just a moment life was perfect. Sigh

Oh what a sweet story, Patty... I know you were thrilled that your son got to see his daughter. Isn't she gorgeous???? Maybe--since things went well--he can see her again soon.

Life certainly can be hard at times. I wish YOU could see your granddaughter. Maybe someday!!!!! (Let's hope!)

I'm beyond thrilled that your son finally got to see the girls after such a long seperation. It is so sad when little ones have to bear the burden of adults disagreements, i'm glad that their mam could put aside her issues enough to let the children spend time with your son. the fact that he wanted to see both girls speaks volumes. This is a picture to be treasured without doubt and hopefully, as the visit went well and there were no disagreements, there will be ample opportunity for many more to be taken. I hope you do get to meet your grandaughter soon Patty, what a happy day that will be. sending much love to you and all your loved ones and many prayers for the continuation of this happy occasion xXx

That is sad, never to have seen your grand-daughter. We in UK tend to forget how big America is!
