Reality check and unconditional love

My five-year-old grandson was over the other day I've been out swimming as I started to enter the house he said Grandpa I want you to be careful when you walk in here because I'm playing with these little toys and grandma told me you can't see real good and I just don't want you to get hurt.

I don't know when I expected to break the news to my grandson about my visual impairment what a blessing to hear those words come out of a 5 year old mouth it was a a gut check the absolute blessing along with that gut check was when he said I just don't want you to get hurt how blessed am I to experience life with my grandchildren once again I'm humbled and must thank God for the recovery that he is giving me.

Be blessed and be a blessing,

Jay

Jay, they are truely a blessing, mine live with me and keep me on my toes. It was my birthday in March, and my grandson made me a birthday card, and said inside, " Grandma , 60 is the new 20". I walked with a new step in my walk, and a big smile on my face. 

 

Bless them all

Dear Jay, it sounds like your little apple does not fall far from the tree! Not suprisingly, your grandson has love and concern for you.

Jay I'm blessed to have a grand daughter in the house that is 12 years old born when I had the stroke but she will see after me all the time  knowing I can't get around real good anymore but I drive her to school and some days pick her up after school when her mom can not when she works late..... Glad I can get around as well as I do helping out where I can being paralyzed on one side.....

 

We both can be glad for grand kids around that cares how we are doing.....
