I never like what I see

when I look in the mirror,

I am not fond of seeing photos either,

but once again I am challenged by innocence,

my 2 year old ( almost 2) grandson has no such hang-ups,

I am grandma, great for cuddles,

for reading books,

for building sandcastles on the beach,

he makes no comment on my face,

my weight,

my clothing,

or the way the salt air and the wind had sculpted

my hair into a mass of curls,

I am enough,

and this weekend he called me grandma for the first time,

he is delightful,

and teaches me that life is a delight more often than not,

you can get up from a bumped knee,

and be as wowed by a garden fountain

as you are by the sea and the beach!

He is a better mirror than any other mirror I own!

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
