Grandmothers are one of the best inventions God ever came up, and He’s had some good ones in His Day. My mother is here from Alabama and with her help I have accomplished in 2 days what I couldn’t have done in 2 weeks. We have done hundreds of loads of laundry, cleaned out closets and the fridge (that’s a chore I’m only willing to take on with back up!)
I got teary yesterday while I was doing laundry and lunch was magically making itself in the kitchen. I had to stop and give Shuggie a big hug. She laughed. I didn’t even have to say anything, she knew exactly how I felt.
Aubrey (4) stopped eating her lunch for long enough to ask me why I was hugging Shuggie.
“Because,” I told her. “She is the best thing in the entire world!”
