Thinking about what is my favorite thing. Oprah made favorite things a national topic of discussion on a regular basis. When asked recently on a Face book interview what her one favorite thing was she responded a Breville Panini maker.
My very first thought was Grandchildren. They are the light of this Grandmother's life.
I don't quite understand how and why that is. But then as I ponder it further I think it has to do with heart strings. I remember with each of the births of my three sons looking at them and having a very distinct physical sensation of overwhelming love and connection to them. Those connections have never diminished but with the addition of their children it is like a double down!!
It isn't that they need or depend or me for anything. In fact they most likely (the older ones) think I'm a funny old lady, or worse a crazy old lady!! The younger ones like that I read to them and hopefully they all like the cookies I bake for them. That is why I bake. Those cookies are made with Grandma's real love for all of her family!!
