Scoop You Up

"The comfort of being in grandmom's arms.
Peace. Love. Happiness."
I know my mom might not like this picture being out there for all of blogland with her beach hair, but every time I see this photo I smile and feel thankful. Little Chick loves her Omi (grandmom) so much! She always says "I miss Omi" the minute we pull out of her driveway, when she wakes up and when she goes to sleep. The two have a special bond that is really fun to see. I feel so blessed to live close by my mom. It makes it easy to stop by often. Little Chick and I like to call her and say, "We are going to scoop you up." Then we show up ten minutes later and take her to dinner or shopping. It is the little things that my daughter will remember as the most comforting. I am so thankful for that.
What is one of the little things you are thankful for?

  4. beautiful picture...should be framed. What a bond between grandma and her precious granddaughter! I am SO thankful that we live close to both of our parents, and the boys have a strong relationship with them! When my mom comes over, the boys light up with excitement...that brings me joy like NO other!
    Have a great weekend :)

  8. this photo falls under the catergory of 'a picture tells a thousand words' ....
    love it!

    my parents live an hour away, which is close enough for us to all visit but not as often as i would like (or ella and zoe -- they feel the same way about their grama as little chick does about hers). 'Scoop you up' --- LOVE that too!

  10. I don't think there could be a more perfect picture. Such love just emits from it. There is no love like that of a grandmother. It's a special bond. It looks like no body has to tell Little Chick that.

  14. Aw! This makes me wish I lived closer to my parents!

  15. That is the sweetest picture! I am thankful for Skype - it lets Georgia get to know both sets of grandparents, even though they live 3000 miles away. They read books to her, sing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and she tells them all her new words. It makes living so far away almost bearable.

  17. Beautiful! I wish I lived closer to my mom and could "scoop her up" anytime. What a blessing to have Little chick grow up so close to Omi.
