Grandaughter and grandpa
Something happens to a parent/grandparent when they have a child. Their particular child suddenly seems to be the most precious and beautiful child in the whole world. That is difficult for me, as I have 30 grands and 7 great grands. They all tug at my heart strings. I always am madly in love with the one I am with. :-)
Abriele has had a bit of a virus, which had caused her to mess all her clothes up that her mother had packed for her and as a last resort, I dug through my clothes to find something to keep her warm and found this polo shirt to put on her. We were happily babysitting while Mariolina was in class. Even while she was waddling around the house, as an 11 month old does, we thought she was adorable even in my baggy shirt. My short sleeves nearly covered her arms and the shirt reached the floor tripping our poor little sweetheart as she tried to explore every nook and cranny of the living room. She was ambivalent to the awkwardness and trudged on, often tumbling to her bottom.
Every moment I thank God for the blessings He has given me and my heart goes out to those who have recently lost loved ones to violence. I could not bear to lose one of these precious little ones. The bill was not passed today in senate, and now those who lost loved ones have resolved to continue the fight to keep assault weapons out of the hands of the public. They deserve to know that their child has not died in vain!
1. How do you feel about assault weapons?
2. Who gains from these sales?
This post linked to two questions Thursday. Please have a great week. I'm going to bed now. Little folks wear me out and I have work tomorrow. :-) Blessings and hugs!
