As we grow older we begin to look at our past and wonder what we could, would and should have done differently. We tend to find pain in bad choices or lost possibilities and lost loves.
Could it be that we should be grateful for where we are today and the blessings of the future instead? In the blink of an eye my children were grown and I felt as if reasons to bound out of bed each day were lessened. I was wrong.
This child, this innocent and lovely face reminded me why I was here to begin with. Life is about creating life.
Life is about the sharing of love and knowledge and support through our God given extensions for us to move forward.
My heart opened as wide as it could without breaking in two separate pieces when I saw my Grand daughter's face through the camera.
Within the sparkle of her eyes she projected an outlook of hope and happiness for the future.
Within her smile and soft features and trust in the world I viewed a new and radiating hope!
A hope for the world without malice, distrust and fear.
Simple and pure is her view of life and within her smile I also gained reassurance. My personal regrets dissipated, my heart filled with joy and my outlook was filled with belief that our world will be fine.
Each and every one of our children and Grand children have the ability to make better choices, sweeten the pot with their insights, their talents, and guide the future to its peak.
As she sweetly took my hand with her fragile, long fingers and said, "I love you Mamaw", all my regrets were gone, my heart was healed, life looked positive yet again and she took me straight back to my future.
