The Joys of a Proud Grandma

First there was the joy of being a mother for the first time;

All pains of labor and the ordeals of pregnancy suddenly banished at the sound of the baby’s first cry;

Followed by long years of a new life full of combinations of love, fun, dreams, pride, duties, responsibilities, worries, to name a few, as the child goes through every stage of development;

Then the grandchildren;

Sweet grandchildren! Babies of your own baby;

It’s beyond words to watch the grandchildren grow as your own child handles them through the years;

I have five beautiful grandchildren who are the extension of my own person;

I see myself in each of them;

My sweet and wonderful first granddaughter is now on her fourth year in the university taking up Architecture;

She is so pretty and smart, the joy and pride of her father and mother;

She is the epitome of love, sweetness, virtues and intelligence;

My first love and pride as a grandma;

My sweet grandtwinsm both taller than me, they're just 14, I am 5'4

Followed by the miraculous boy-girl twins;

The boy carries a lot of my look and total personality;

He is full of energy;

He is ambitious and he dreams of greatness;

He is 14 and he often shares with me his plans for the future;

We chat very often and he loves me as much as I love him;

Sweet to my heart grandson...I call him Pokoy which means my sweet grandson...

He wants me to be proud of him for he is also proud of me;

He often brags to his classmates that his grandma has got magic and he believes in me;

God! What else can a grandma ask!

Oh joy of “grandmahood”!

Pretty Moj...that's how I call my second granddaughter...isn't she pretty?

The girl in the twins is probably the smartest of them three;

She always gathers academic honors every end of the school term;

She is a beauty and brain combined;

Her legs are those of a model;

Her physical features are flawless;

A beauty that I can only dream in my youth;

She is the manifestation of my fantasy of beauty;

And the five year old granddaughter, daughter of my own daughter is me personified;

In just one look at her, people would say that she is my own daughter;

She is the closest replica to my looks and energy;

The skin tone, the hair, the way she speaks, her excessive energy;

They are all me, a child again;

I am Jenny, and people call this granddaughter, “Jenny the small”;

Her name is CyeCye and people call me “CyeCye the big”

When I am gone from this life, my blood and my person will still live on through CyeCye;

And last but not least is the youngest and most handsome of them all, Claude;

He is 3 years old and already aware and conceited about his handsome face;

Oh! Joy of “grandmotherhood”!

I really feel like I am one of the luckiest creatures

I really feel like I am one of the luckiest creatures in this vast universe;

My life is complete with love and blessings direct from God and the Universe;

I feel like I own all the riches this Universe can provide;

“I am rich in love, a millionaire”

Was it Tom Jones’ lyrics in one of his songs?

It just echoes through my head as I think and count all my blessings.
