I would tell my Mother that I understand how she felt about having grandchildren. She would tell me when I was a young girl that when I had my own child, I would understand the love that she and Daddy had for me.
she was right; when my baby girl was born, my whole life changed forever, and it is incredible..
When she had grandchildren, I could see the light in her eyes and the patience she showed as she explained how to do something to them...and, she said, 'when you have your own grandchildren you will understand how it feels. I watched her with my daughter as she taught her to love the land...and I had an inkling of what she was feeling.
Now that I have my own grandboys I truly understand.
My words to her would be....'Mother, there is a symphony is my heart each time I think of my grandboys and each time they are with me. Just as you felt when your grandchildren were near.'
