I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

My grandson Ezzie has been with us this weekend.Its such a joy being a grandparent!
He walked in on Friday night and smelled and said OH cool..STEAK! Hes never been a very good eater and even though hes nearly 8 he still is fussy about food.So I was very happy that Id managed to cook something that would stimulate his taste buds.He ate a big piece of steak,mashed potatoes and green beans and he ate the lot! I was so shocked.Then we had a game of cards and of course he won.He told me dont worry Nannie,its not about winning,its about playing the game...
Yesterday he made a big hut under the tree and spent hours talking to himself and making a town centre ..and it even had a McDonalds!(go imagine)Hes a happy little boy and so loving.He gives the best hugs.Last night he played cards again but with James this time.They played memory and of course he won again.He explained to me that he knew how to cheat but he wouldnt do that with us.
Hes so cute and has helped so much to get us all through the sadness.How can you feel sad when a child says Nan,you look pretty today:)

I am glad you had such a special time. Grandma's cooking always tastes better! I seriously think it is the love! I always cheated at cards with my poor grandaddy. The sweet man never called me on it. Children have the ability to take away sadness with just a glimpse of their face. They make all the hard stuff worth it.

Indeed you can't get sad having a kid like this. He seems to be very thoughtful, caring and he's handsome. He knows where to tickle to make you laugh. He knows how to ease you from whatever burden you're carrying. How can we forget such a grand kid.

I visit you from Chana. Read much of your blog. What courage you two have. Have lived in that grace bubble when husband had stroke and when my mother was dying from lung cancer. He visits and strengthens us when we are so weak.
Your posts are just beautiful. May God continue to visit you with His peace and hope.
