Earlier today our grandgirls went back home to begin life with their brand new sister.
Last night, just as they was going to bed, Elora said to me, "
"Grandma Honey, before you go to sleep tonight, look right beside your pillow."
For some reason that sounded alarming to me so I asked, "Why?"
"Just look by your pillow. That's all I'm sayin' "
Of course with that statement, I wasted no time and went right into my bedroom, while Elora followed close behind. I noticed Dennis had turned down the sheets already, as he often does. There was nothing by my pillow. Elora looked a bit panicked so she dove right into our bed searching everywhere. She kept saying, "I don't know what happened to it!"
"Well what was it??" I asked more than once.
She then jumped off the bed (literally) and slid herself under the bed.
"Here it is! I found it!"
And up she came from the dust (it collects under the bed you know), with this sweet treasure in her hands:

As I began to open it, she said, "And this applies to Grandpa Dennis too."
It's wonderful to feel appreciated.
***In all honesty, I have to say that Elora thinks both Grandmas are 'the best.'***
She has a very special relationship with Erin's mom that I couldn't hold a candle to.
But I like to think Elora and I also have something unique and special, too.
