Grandson:  Nana, I love you more
than all the race cars in the world.

Grandmother:  And I love you more
than all the tires on all the race cars
in the world.

Now that's love.

You a GRANDMA??!!! Wow!! Found myself feeling really broody a year or so ago, about becoming a grandmother... but maybe that had more to do with the young man who was in my daughter's life at the time!! :)) You're a natural communicator, Mari... you speak the language of love that EVERYONE can understand! Bless you, you're an absolute STAR!! TY Kate xx

Ha, I can just see the smile on your face, Mari, you were given a gift, a reason for being, for loving and feeling and thinking and surviving, for being a flawed human who begot -- this 'boy'. :)

For me, it's girls, two under fourteen, no fives allowed, please. Tough years, from birth to upper-age...

You brought a smile, and a lesson, and a hug of life into view with steady, short succinctness, balanced with loving humor, and maybe even irony, to this reader's reality-slaught mind of adulthood.
