Daily Blessings... November 17th and 18th

Life is better with grandchildren...
they are the most precious blooms in my gardens.

When the voices of children are heard on the green
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast
And everything else is still.
William Blake, "Nurse's Song"

Give children time to explore...
to learn about the feel of the grass under their feet 
and the wiggliness of worms in their hands 
and their giggles will warm your heart.

I'm thankful today for my grandchildren...
#16 will be here soon.

I'm taking another chance at a photo contest with this image... it's one of my favorites and it brings back such sweet memories of a perfect visit to my island grand-kiddos.
Wish me luck!
