Salty Fix

The very below picture is one of my favorites. It’s my 3 year old ‘A’ running to her grandparents and cousins. Right now, I am in the sweet spot of my daughters having all their grandparents.

Annie Flavin, a blogger and poet whose work I love, recently lost her mother-in-law, and reading this post about how she had that ‘sweet spot’ of having all parents and now not having them is real and raw. I hope all those who have lost parents and family members both recently or long ago find peace.

I so appreciate having wonderful family on hand whether they are less than an hour away or a long road trip away. Just having them and knowing they are there is an amazing thing. To have little children form relationships with your parents and to bond with them is something I never get tired of. My girls’ chuckles get gigglier around their grandparents.

I hope that one day at the right time I get to be a grandmother with lots of people around the table, games being played, laughter being heard, and so much more!

When you have 3 cricket-loving brothers, a father, a husband, and 2 male cousins you get … cricket on the beach!

And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record. (Quran 6:59)
