And a little child shall lead them

Got all kinds of things done that needed to get done–laundry, cleaning, Milk Pail pickup, the weekly hour forty-five spent watering all the trees, there’s sourdough bread rising, even got a little knitting in but nowhere near what I should have.

But in the back of my mind the whole time was the errands I would be running if I could be running them and someday this pandemic will pass and I’ll get to really see the world outside again and my friends in person and man I can’t wait.

My phone buzzed.

It was a video of Lillian. Somehow she is nearly ten months. In it she pulled herself up below a window, bouncing and vocalizing for joy, patting the wall and then grabbing the windowsill, bouncybouncybounce delighted with herself that she could do this now and turning and grinning at the camera.

She could almost, almost make herself tall enough to see straight out that window, but looking up makes her happy.  Right now, no waiting.

What a joy! Even if you can’t be there.

Oh such joy they have at every new experience! Now that she is up there will be much more joy!
Got to see my great granddaughter for a while Friday night. At almost 3 she is adorable of course. And I think we squatted down to look at every tiny flower, ant and blade of grass. (My knees are not happy today)

It’s hard to beat when the phone buzzes and you see it has a video update on it.
