Marsha was telling me that her granddaughter Hannah will run her fingers through her hair and tell her how pretty her hair is and she will pat her cheek and tell her she is beautiful. How sweet is that.
I have been dressing up for Halloween since I have had grandchildren. When grandaughter Shea was about 5 years old I answered her"trick or treat" dressed in my daughter's long petticoat that she had worn under gowns when she was competing in pageants. I couldn't get it zipped up completely, but the white t shirt I put over the top of it covered the gap. I put on the veil and I was "in costume". I expected her to laugh and laugh at Gamma as a bride, but to my astonishment, her eyes got big and she gushed, "Gamma, you are bea.....tiful!" I wasn't expecting that at all.
When I think of these precious children's love for their grandmothers, I have to think that is how God sees us.
