Ya Ya and the Magic Bag
Wet noses pressed to the window, eyes alert for a glimpse of what is inside the gift bag. Today it was ABC cardboard letters, a toy truck from the 1970’s and bath towels…and so much more…
A glowing, proud smile as Benjamin puts the letters in order, recites them and their sounds…IT was missing an F and an N…so she made some from cereal box cardboard; that’s our YaYa.
Dancing with Eli while sitting on the pink chair, her feet moving and laughing with glee as Eli mimics her tapping toes; that’s our YaYa.
Garlic bread for Ian to go with spaghetti; she stands proudly, hands on her hips and an ear to ear smile, as he sniffs the loaf; that’s our YaYa.
A hug for Shyloh, a squeeze as she comes through the door; home at last from school. Eye to eye, toe to toe; a shared laugh and grin with YaYa.
A joke for Micah, a riddle for him, loving mind games with Yaya, his Gram.
A box of crayons and a purple treasure box for artsy Faith, just a special little thing, and the squeeze here it comes… oh YAYA.
And Mazie, her scream as she busts in the door, a conundrum for Yaya who looks and… YES a bright red yoyo that lights as it spins comes out of the magic bag.
No one forgotten, not one of them. Thank you dear YAYA for loving them too, they are so special and you see it too!!
Thank you so much Grandma for loving these gifts and blessings that overwhelm so many people, but you see them one by one!! If you don’t have a Grandma like this for your children, become one someday!! What a difference a Godly Loving Grandma makes in her grandchildren’s lives! Loved one at a time, in a way that they are made to feel precious, cherished, and special; Thank you God, for Grandma.
Happy Mother’s Day, Grandma!
