Precious Moments

Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux

Rita Goodgame shared a wonderful poem, Ready for Framing, in the new issue of Encouraging Women with Hearts for Their Homes. In it she ponders the special moments that grandparents share with their grandchildren. "The old and young," Rita says. "Another precious moment clipped together ready for framing."

Rita's words captured how I felt a couple of weeks ago when two of Pops' and my grandchildren enjoyed God's creation together in their backyard: Cicada shells, tomatoes in the garden, butterflies, birds, and even baby lizards—the first I had ever seen.

Special moments don't come with price tags. Instead, they come with heartstrings, and my grandkids definitely have their hearts strung to mine.

What special moments have you enjoyed with your grandchildren? How do you "clip them" for framing?

Have a great week,
