Who Knew?

I love being a "nana"! I wasn't sure at first if I was old enough to have that title, but as I passed by a mirror I had to look twice to see who that was. Then I realized yes, I qualified. I love the way 2 little girls run to the door to greet me when I stop by. They never get tired of seeing me or seem to be upset that " here she is again". No, they can't wait to give me kisses and hugs and demand, "come play with me!"

I have found that I look forward to see "who" they are that day. One day I might find a princess, complete with a gown of white with gold trim and a sparkling crown. Perhaps the next time I find a builder that has constructed a huge building made of colorful legos. Then there can be an artist that had created so many masterpieces that the refrigerator couldn't hold them all and they were spilling onto the kitchen counters and I had to hurry into the home to see each one. I think the most startling time was when I found two little "naked as jaybirds" girls flitting around the house because clothes were just too confining to wear that day!

Yes, I just love being nana! Life with 2 little girls is so unpredictable, but oh so free! They are so quick to make me feel so very special and so deeply loved. They don't care if my hair is grey, or the wrinkles are expanding by the second. All they care about is that I am there and they know I adore them.

I look at my daughter and my love bubbles over because I also love being mom! I think back on the day that title hit me. Once again I wasn't sure I was old enough or wise enough to have that title. As the days passed and the love I had for my own little girl grew until I thought my heart would burst from my chest. I still have that feeling after 40 years.

It makes me think of how God must see me. One day a princess all dressed up and feeling so special. Perhaps the next day not so much. However, just like a nana or a mom that is so in love with her girls, God is crazy in love with me. I can't wait to tell him all about my day or ask Him what are we going to do today. Just like life with 2 little granddaughters, or life with my precious daughter life with God is so unpredictable but oh so free!

God is crazy about you too! Did you know that? Do you believe it? Just check out what he did for you so he could tell you that He's crazy in love with you His precious daughter.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world {YOU} that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Happy Mother's Day


  1. "They don't care if my hair is grey, or the wrinkles are expanding by the second. All they care about is that I am there and they know I adore them." SO true, thank you for this reminder.:) Stopping by via Coffee for Your Heart.

  2. I guess we need to get a little older to realize some things. Blessings Katie

  3. This morning I said to my 17-year old granddaughter, "Speak nicely to your aunt or I'm gonna come down there and give you what-for!" She said, "OH GREAT MIMZ come down I want to see you!!!" Grandmother-hood is absolutely the BEST! Visiting from Holley Gerth's Coffee For Your Heart today.
