On Wednesdays we have Ken come and do our eggs for us and so we often head out for a breakfast date.
We took two vehicles since he had a date with the Merc after breakfast at the wheel alignment professionals and I had ideas of my own.
He went his way and I made a quick phone call over to grandgirlies house to see if she would be available for a date at the park .. she was.
So .. we set off her and I hand in hand.
The playground was still relatively peaceful upon our arrival but soon we noticed that it was the place to be.
I overheard one mommy mentioning to her wee one that they needed to go register.
I enquired what they might be registering for.
It seems that on occasion the local early development people in the neighborhood set up story time in the park.
I wasn't sure if grammies were allowed to register their grands and so I asked and found it to be a register whoever you want type of event.
We sat together at story time her and I.
We participated in the parachute toss and stood in line for the free snack of a juice box and nutrigrain bar.
We sang camp songs. .
and at the end of the story time in the park ..
we were quite delighted at the offer of a free book.
Upon perusing the first few pages she announced. . ."I love ants" ..at which I smiled since her daddy does not.
We walked back to her house hand in hand ...her book under her arm.
I went home then. . happy with my blessing of the day.
In the evening we sat in our tent. .he and I. . chatting about our darling grands. .and how they make us smile.
I brought my notebook out to the tent to tell this story to you. .
checked my emails and comments from the day . .
and then I saw it. . .
a comment on my post from yesterday . .
someone who regularly visits my blog. She had been there at the park and saw the two of us.
How very sweet of her to mention it .. I do wish we had met.
I had wondered in the morning if I wanted to come home after breakfast and get some housework done . .
but I sensed God's nudge in taking a little girl to the park.
I almost missed it . .and though I would have gotten that housework done and ahead on various projects I would have never known what blessings God had all ready for me.
All for now. .
