Having a quick dust around my eyes fell on the door frame. I smiled as I noticed the height marks of my little grand daughter, showing how tall she is each time we measure her. It was the same when my children were little.
Seeing the photos and video clips my daughter sends of my little grandchildren. Still not seen them-13 months now- and still not met the youngest who is 9 months old (curse COVID!!!). So seeing daily updates, albeit via technology warms my heart and makes me smile.
My wife, my children, grand children, toddlers with their parents in the street, everyday kindness many things make me smile and when it comes down to it one word "love" makes me smile, gives me hope and makes life worthwhile and banishes all the horrors that this world can bring.
Sillydevil how lovely, this is so true. Newathis what would we do without technology. Ellanvalin how lovely that a love token a decade ago still survives and makes you smile. Paddyanne love it. One more of mine, when granddaughter wraps her arms around me and whispers "love you Nanny"
