Today I looked into the heart of little George. As I held him, his eyes opened for a few moments staring into my eyes connecting for the first time since he was born. I was moved to tears, realizing that I just made my first emotional connection with my little grandson.
The emotions have been building up since the day he was born. Daily I have gradually been bonding more and more with him. Having given space to my daughter and son in law for their own bonding time with George. I look forward to the days to come, as I am able to continue building a relationship with little George.
That relationship can be anything, George and I can imagine. There were lessons learned from my previous mistakes of being a parent! Not to mention all the great wisdom that comes with age… Perhaps that’s why “they” say being a grandparent is so much better than being a parent…
I miss George today, and I really miss meme’s view… Holding George in my arms, looking into his eyes!
In Love with George
