This post is both somber and fun.
I have a grandson named Loki. He is a hyperactive, obedient, ball of funny. I just love him so much. He calls me ‘Grandma Jen’ and gives me a hug every time he sees me. Loki’s just so darn lovable. At this past Christmastime, you should have seen his excited face as he opened his gifts. Ditto for his birthday.
I had been overjoyed when my son told me I was going to be a grandmother again! However, he and his wife recently lost that baby due to a high level of stress. She had been two months along. With my other son and his wife having difficulty becoming pregnant, my heart hurts for all four of them.
My heart hurts for me, too. That may sound selfish, but it’s true. I love being a grandma so much, I’d love for them to surround me, and give me fabulous hugs like Loki does.
Thanks for reading.
