This made me cry (in a good way)

I know I'm feeling a little low today after starting chemo again yesterday, but my daughter has just phoned me to see how I am and told me about what my gorgeous 5 year old grandson said last night.
He was reading his key stage 1 story book in bed which was a shortened version of Beauty and the Beast. Near the end of the book the beast gives Bella (not Belle in this version) a mirror so that when she looks into it she will see him and see if he is well. At the end of the book there are some questions to check if the reader understood the story. One of them was "Would you like a magic mirror like the one the beast gave Bella?" My grandson immediately said yes and when asked by my daughter who he would like to see in it, he said "Nana, and then I can see her getting better"
I love him so much

How lovely.
What a dear little boy.

Take good care. 💐

Thanks for all your kind words. Yes, he is the most delightful little boy along with his 22 month old brother who thinks that every time he picks up the phone I will be on the other end as I am the only one who talks to him on the landline. His mum has had to place the phone out of his reach as he get upset when he puts it to his ear and nobody is there. So funny

What a thoughtful little boy. I’m sure your grandsons will provide some comfort to you whilst going through the treatment.

Hoping all goes well and you have a speedy recovery

What caring thoughts for you to remember throughout your treatment.
I hope that day comes very soon when your GS sees you truly recovered and well. 😌
