Day 23 - An Afternoon Simply Being "Mimi"

Day 23 - and I haven't lost my rhythm yet on the daily posting!  Some days, I just don't know where I will find the time to sit down and prepare something, but (amazingly!!!) I have.  Just being able to continue this project has been a blessing - and I can see where there has been some Divine Intervention along the way, allowing things to fall into place!

Today was a special blessing for me, as a grandmother.  Ansleigh, my five-year old granddaughter, has been a bit under the weather.  Since she still had fever this morning, she couldn't go to daycare.  I had business at the office and some running to get done this morning, but I was able to help out this afternoon.  After spending the morning at my mom's house, she came home with me about noon.

Thankfully, she had no fever and wasn't feeling that bad at all by the time she got over here.  So, we were really able to just enjoy some girl time while she was here!

We had macaroni & cheese for lunch - eaten in front of the TV, watching a Christmas movie.

Then we piled up on the bed, with the little pups, for a nice nap under a warm, snuggly blanket. 

After napping, another Christmas movie was in order while she ate a bowl of Cheerios - her appetite was much better today than yesterday.  

Before we knew it, it was time for her mommy to pick her up!  But, what a nice and relaxed afternoon we had together.

Oh, the blessings of being a grandmother!  I am thankful for my grandbabies and time I get to spend with them!!!  And I am thankful I was able to help Bonnie out today - 'cause that's what Moms are for!!!

Snuggle with the ones you love....
