My beautiful beautiful friend knows exactly what Blue Wrens mean to me. She found this cafe and little while ago and has been begging me to come to Sydney so we could go. Today, we went.... and it was glorious. Not only the food, but the fact that there were little blue wrens on everything. Thank you @kellyrae.mcloughlin you are amazing... and thank you @the_wren_dural for exisiting! .
Fostering quality connection between children and family from afar is hard work. Not every video chat or activity that you try is going to stimulate interaction. Be patient, keep trying as when it does happen it is going to be genuine and it is going bring joy into the hearts of all parties- the child, grandparent and #parent .
Today, I had to remind myself of this. I am missing #family and I really longed for my #children to connect with family afar as I know much #grandma and #grandpa are missing them too. I set-up a #coloring activity- making a shoe for #desint aka #Sinterklaas or #saintnicolas , put the device at the edge of their drawings so the #kids could see the #grandparents , but my #son wasn't having it. Then grandpa started showing off his #pearlywhites and talking about a recent trip to dentist. My son had also been to the #dentist this week and something clicked. The two started exchanging big smiles. It was just for a minute, the moment passed, and we ended the call; but it was all worth it. That is the stuff we live for here at GDP; that is quality connection.
God sends diffrent things to bless us , sometimes its a friend at the perfect moment.sometimes its a envelope from the mailman that changes your life. Sometimes its a neardeath experience to wake you up, sometimes its a health scare, sometimes its the perfect word of encouragement in you r sad times . But for me it was this precious angel right here .i was scared as can be when i found out she was on our way into our family. But from the first day ive never been the same she is my first grand daughter my flesh and blood who i couldnt love more. And on sunday she will be dedicated to our father christianed in the name of the father son and holy spirit . Lord you saw me through it and we trust her pure soul in your hands thank you jesus for my family children grand daughter and husband....💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
