Helping Hands......

My sweet Vivi

I had such a good time with my sweet grand girl ,Vivian, and her brother Colton. Their visit was just to short,but we filled the days with as much love,hugs and playing as meme was up for! She played the music while meme sang,and sang...and sang!  I run out of gas and suggested we do something different  :)  She was all excited to wash dishes. I gotta tell ya,she did a great job of it too for a four year old.....there was no need to go back over them. Little ones can be a big help, when given the opportunity. Unfortunately, some mothers and grandmothers are to concern about them making more of a mess and prefer to just do it themselves. They won't learn if we don't let them try, and its best to let them try while they are very young and eager to do so. Ever try getting teenagers to wash dishes, they look at you....like...are you kidding? Just kidding,because my older grands to help,but they aren't as eager as the little ones  :)
Her sweet face shows how proud she was to help.

Anyone think she looks a bit like her meme at the same age of 4 years?  Her daddy ...begged to pardon...claiming, She looks like her daddy  :) Which of course, favors his mama too!

I will miss them until their next visit. It's such a different world than God planned, but by his grace and mercy....he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Romans 8:28

Life isn't always a " bowl of cherries" ,but we take the good with the bad,and thank God for them all!

Blessings to all

Meme... she definitely looks like you at that age.. So cute.
and how sweet of her to help you with the dishes.. I agree the little ones are so eager to learn at this age.. And a good grandma to spend this time teaching.
We don't always know what God has in store for us..but he will take care of us and help us through, all of our trials. Sending prayers and hugs.

I definitely see the resemblance between Vivi & her Meme. She's such a cutie!!
I'm so glad you had a nice visit with them!
Those cherries look yummy. Have you ever seen the drawing by Mary Engelbreit that features the quote "Life is just a "chair of bowlies"? The illustration is so cute.
