You see, the Grands are coming really quicker than I can keep up with and each and every precious one has their own little personality. Some are loud and showy, some are quiet and sneaky, and some are laid back, but there's one thing for sure...most come into this world trying to figure it out and get adjusted. And in the process of doing that...they cry. And THAT is exactly why it is good to have a "plan".
Since Justin and Sarah have moved back to Alexandria, they are within walking distance of a park. And I love this little park with the walking track, playground, benches, shade trees and bird sanctuary. I love the fact that one can walk or sit and just enjoy the quiet. And I know another thing or two about what babies like. Most of them like to go for a stroll and if you are very lucky, they will not cry and may even take a nap. And THAT was my "plan".
Sitting there quietly, I began to ponder what has happened to our world. It was a much simpler place whenever I was growing up. Not much television and no cell phones or computers for sure. I sat around reading, coloring or playing with my toys. Jigsaw puzzles, books and dolls were my world. And it was serene. And as I sat there, I vowed to do this more often; unplug and enjoy the peacefulness of just being quiet.
