I love you - "The Number"

It seems that my grandson, Caleb and I have always made little additions to our "I love yous".
He has always been a very caring little guy and sometimes out of the blue will say, Gramma and when I say yes, he will say I love you!
At one time we would add words like wider, taller, deeper, higher, stinkier to the end our I love yous. Some times he would point in one direction and then the other and tell me I love you from that sky to that sky!
Recently on one of our visits he told me I love you and I told him I love you more - to which he started saying I love you and adding numbers. He finally said listen to this number and rattled off a very large number (I think in the billions) and said that's how much I love you Gramma, "the number". Now often times when we talk, he will say I love you "the number" Gramma! Of course I love him "the number" also!
I had always heard what a precious experience it is to be a grandparent, however there is no description that completely explains it! The closest I can come is to say we love each other "the number"!

Happy New Year!

My Daddy always use to say that the older you get, the quicker each year goes by.

I have found in the last 5 years or so the truth behind that statement.

At times throughout my life I know that I have not taken time to enjoy the blessings and people in my life as fully as I could have. It's my goal and desire to continue to learn to live in the present. Not taking any of the blessings for granted.

We are not promised tomorrow. We are given the gift of this day.
