Do you live in the moment?
We just got through a weekend visit from the granddaughters who are still talking about their visit to "gama an gama."
We have visited them often in Chicago, but this was their first trip to Iowa. The eldest got to sit on gama's (with the hat) John Deere L&G tractor and make noises.
The youngest is still being nursed every two hours, and we got to walk the little one in between so my daughter could get some sleep. After my back gave out I creaked to the recliner and let the little one fall asleep on my shoulder.
I must of looked like I wanted to get up and "do something." My daughter said I might as well just sit there and enjoy it. If I moved or got up the baby would start fussing again. My daughter was right. It was kind of cool just to sit there and not do anything else than hold my granddaughter.
I am a great one for piddling around the garden. I should not feel guilty for sitting on the deck just enjoying the scenery, or enjoying holding my granddaughter.
