delight.. & happiness - all rolled into little bundles of JOY

joy: a source of happiness. keen pleasure or delight

I want to share with you.. a source of my joy.

a source of my delight, a source of keen pleasure and happiness..

I think that out of every single thing in the whole wide world.. these little boys. my youngest grandsons. Harry & Charlie.. bring me the most joy.. just even looking at them, I feel a surge of delight.. joy. joy. joy. in my heart.

You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile, 1762

Dear Robyn,
How precious your grandsons are! I still have a hard time seeing you as a grandma ~ you look too young.

Robyn, it seems that since you've moved to Villa Maria you are more content then I've "seen" you in quite awhile. I know you still have your dark times. I've just noticed that the moon is staring to wan again and I feel that tug in the other direction with my emotions. Melancholy I suppose.
Sending you lots of love ~

I hope they will always be this openly kind and loving to each other. It will help them in the world as they go.

Oh Robyn, don't you just love the little fingers and toes, the exuberance, the right-there-ness of every emotion? Don't you love seeing your own child become a parent right before your eyes? What pure JOY!

If I were a grandmother I don't think I'd need so much cake. Your grandsons are adorable.
