The best gift of all

July 24, 2014 - Linda Lobeck
I’m looking forward to helping celebrate my granddaughter’s third birthday. It’s been such a joy to have been involved in her life – she’s funny, silly, smart and shows great compassion and love for everyone.

She likes all animals and especially loves our puppy Lucy who goes everywhere she does and rarely leaves her side.

While she loves playing princess and dressing in tutus, she’s also interested in a variety of sports and other activities. Recently she’s been interested in a show with pirates and Captain Hook called Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She likes to go down our basement and to play basketball with her Dad and has discovered some toys that I saved including a pirate ship. It was a big discussion with her to find out what kind of a cake she wanted for her birthday – going between Minnie Mouse and Dora – and finally settling on Minnie. She wants to make sure Lucy gets some cake, but I think it will have to be a little ice cream instead. Lucy will be turning one years-old the week after her, so they are having a party together.

The best thing about having a grandchild is the fact that I don’t have to be the parent and I've relaxed and don't worry about the housework when she's here. I can just enjoy every minute she’s here with us playing dolls and princesses, going to the park, reading books, watching movies, and swimming in the pool. But the best thing of all is having someone call you Grandma and snuggle up next to you.

I saw something on a post on Facebook recently that sums it all up. It said, “Blessed are those who snuggle and hug, spoil and pamper, boast and brag…For they shall be called Grandmothers.” Being a mother is a blessing, and being a grandmother is just the best gift your child can give you. Happy 3rd Birthday sweet Madelyn!
