My Cup Overfloweth

Yesterday was a wonderful day, filled with blessings and joy.  For one thing, I got to spend the whole day with three of the most adorable little lasses west of the Mississippi--my twin granddaughters Bonny Babe and Cutie Pie, along with the newest addition to my oldest son's family, a little peanut of a girl who shall be known on this blog as Little Gal.  This miniature human, who looks as perfect as a porcelain doll, is absolutely precious.

I am so happy in my role as Grammy to these three sweethearts.  I found this quote on-line that I just love: "Becoming a grandmother is wonderful.  One moment you are just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric." (~Pam Brown)

There is no greater reward for growing old than becoming a grandparent--so I'll take becoming prehistoric any day of the week if it means I get to have grandchildren!

Here's another gem I've quoted before in this blog: "Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting." (~Author Unknown)

As the kids like to say these days, SWEET!

Or how about: "Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies."  (~Author Unknown)

I really like this Author Unknown guy.  He describes exactly the kind of grandmother I intend to be.  As they grow up, I hope that's just what these girls will think about when they think of me: love and baked goods!
Grammy and  her Little Gal.
Papa and Grammy topped off their day yesterday watching Bonny and Cutie take a bath, which is always a treat.  As you can plainly see.
As if the day wasn't as close to perfect as possible already, I found out last night that another positive review for Finding Grace had been posted on Amazon.  Shortly before I turned in for the night, I checked my e-mails and to my delight found a message from author Therese Heckenkamp (Past Suspicion, Frozen Footprints), with whom I've become on-line friends, telling me that she'd posted a review on Amazon as well as Goodreads, her Catholic Fiction website, and her blog.  If you'd like to read Therese's review, just click on this link.

Too much happiness for one day, right?  But wait, there was hubby and I then had a "Downton Abbey" date and watched two episodes of Season 3, while lying in bed with his iPad screen propped up in front of us.  A perfect end to a perfect day.

Indeed, my cup overfloweth.
