To Be Called Grandma

Oh to be a grandma...If you are a grandma, you know what I am talking about.  That little bundle of joy that gives you hugs and kisses is the best thing in your life.  What you wouldn't do for him or her.

I am visiting my son and daughter-in-law who live in Virginia.  Of course, my motives for visiting are not just to see them but a little guy that I dearly grandson, Levi.  Wow...lots of energy in that little frame of his. 

We have read books, watched Elmo, played with his toys, and are learning to walk.  He wears grandma out, but I love it...those little kisses are all worth it. 

Everything is always new and exciting.  No matter how many times you read that same book it's always exciting.  No matter how many times you watch Elmo singing The Elmo Song it's always exciting.  We go through our day seeing things through his eyes - everything is always exciting.

Even though he is not talking yet you can understand what he is saying most of the time.  I can't wait to hear what he is going to call me.  If it's grandma, that will be OK.  Whatever it may be I will love it.  I think I've earned the title of Grandma...LOL

Today we have places to go and people to we need to get ready to face the outdoors.  We have another exciting day ahead of us.

Can't wait...

Knitting Your Passion

Follow Your Passion has become a household phrase...I see it everywhere.  Follow Your Passion - Passion Conferences - How to Follow Your Passion - The Passion Test - Rightsizing Your Passion.  The list goes on and on...

I have had several people say to me "I can't quit my job to follow my passion!"  I say "You don't have to quit your job."  You can still do those things that you love to do.  It's not about how much money we can make.  It's about reaching our community with our time and talents.  It's about what you do with that passion.  You can make a difference in the lives of people around you with your passions.

I have a friend who is a nurse in San Francisco.  Her passion is knitting.  She makes beautiful things with a ball of yarn and two needles.  It's her passion but she can't quit her nursing career to sit and knit.  She decided to take her passion of knitting and share that talent with the local homeless shelter.  She holds a class  on Tuesday evenings teaching those in the shelter how to knit.  She has done amazing work in the lives of some "just sitting and knitting" with a group of people every Tuesday evening.

So - What's Your Passion?  How are you reaching the community around you?  Find a way to Follow Your Passion and share it with others around you...
