Being a Grandma

Yesterday, then again last evening I was privileged to babysit the most precious child I have held in 21 years. Collin and Grandma time equals heaven. He is starting to smile and looks into your eyes and stare. I found out I could loose myself in those eyes. Who knows what he will grow up to be, but I know he will grow up knowing that Christ laid down His life for Collin, and I would too. When I arrived at his home last evening after Bible Study, I found Josh playing his guitar in Collin's room trying to put him to sleep. I can't begin to tell you what joy filled my heart at that sight. It didn't last long though ... why was Josh putting Collin down just as Grandma 'Retta arrived? I wanted to hold him. After Josh left, I couldn't contain myself ... I had to hold Collin. So of course I took him out of his crib and while still sleeping held him close to my heart so he could hear the beat. He is one of the reasons it beats on.
Grandma 'Retta loves you so much Collin Clay.
