Sometimes in the business of the “grands life” the beautiful spaces sneak by unnoticed and not appreciated. I am not a morning person, I do not wake up with pixie dust and rainbows. My preference is no conversation until I’m mostly done with my cup of coffee. Rich wakes with his brain in full fast forward mode ready to share all his thoughts, dreams, and insights that he has had since his eyes opened…and they are typically deep and meaningful which is to say we experience mornings completely differently. Sebellah is just like me in her view and feelings about mornings. Usually on school days she hears her alarm, turns it off and comes to the livingroom toting her unicorn pillow and favorite blanket. She then proceeds to toss her pillow on the couch between us , lays down and completely covers her head and body with the blanket complaining “it’s too bright”
This morning she came in, crawled up in my lap, pillow and all….. snuggled up with her face peeking out and smiled sleepily at me. In that beautiful space everything paused. I wasn’t thinking of everything we needed to do to get her ready and out the door to school. This time I was able to sink into that place, that right now and soon to be gone beautiful space and really feel the warmth and sweetness of it.
I believe these beautiful spaces help define who our grands become, how they connect with their world and us. Sink into the beauty and enjoy the wonder..you know, the pixie dust and rainbows!
