Take Good Care Of This Moment

She posted today about a new linky party for December
"Take Good Care Of This Moment" 
hosted by Lynn at Blue Skies
Tell us your moment. The moment of the week where you stopped. You re-looked at your moment. You kept it with you all day, knowing you would save it for a long time to come.

Here is my moment of the week

Wednesday I took care of my Grandson for the day while my SIL took a final exam and my daughter worked.  Not the first time I've been blessed to spend time with this gorgeous child but something happened on Wednesday that was a first.  It was nap time and trying to get Tiger down for his afternoon nap isn't easy.  So Grandma and Tiger lay down together.  I sang a few songs softly and then we prayed for Daddy to do well on his test.  Tiger got very still and very quiet and he and I just gazed into each others eyes.

I felt like he really looked at me for the first time and realized this person is someone special, someone who loves me and I will love her also. I smiled, he smiled back.  I gazed into those beautiful brown eyes that are so much like my daughters and I knew that no matter what is going on in my life, this moment will be precious forever.  

Viewing My World,


  1. Linda, thank you so very much for sharing this beautiful moment. There is nothing better to me than to really, really look into my child's eyes. I can't even imagine when it will be with a grandchild. What a beautiful connection. Sure do appreciate you joining at Blueskies!!

  2. I was just at Pam's blog Linda, and you are right, she does capture the moment. I love the pic of all her girls laughing.
    But those eyes, yes those precious brown eyes.
    I can't tell you I know how it feels, but one day I will be in your shoes.
    Thanks for your moment my friend.
    Love You
    Love Me
