Ice water tastes best when your grandson brings it to you out of love.
Cutting grass is a hot job. I have the utmost respect for those who make their living keeping public and commercial real estate manicured. But it amazes me just how thirsty you can get while riding on a self-propelled machine for an hour.
Just as I realized how parched I was becoming, my grandson ran up to me with a jug of cold ice water. Perfect timing. “Here Mimi, I didn’t want you to get too hot.” What love and respect was in that simple act of kindness. A cool drink of water. Ahhh.
Teaching our children the Word of God is perhaps the most important job we have as parents, grandparents and caregivers. We are blessed with many grandchildren. It never fails to lift my spirit (Spirit) to see how they make the Word of God their own.
