A grandmother’s role is to dote on and comfort her grandchildren, yet on a recent visit to my little ones the roles were swapped.
Bebe, put your head down so I can cover you up.
Without any hesitation I placed my head down on the couch pillow while G. gently placed the soft blankets over my back. I felt warm and loved by his gentle touch as he tucked me in. He walked away and returned with his guitar in hand. Lifting his instrument to play, he gazed into my eyes and began his sweet and gentle lullaby…
You are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear
how much I love you
please don’t take my sunshine away.
Tears dripping down my face I reached up for a much needed hug. This is the kind of role reversal I’d like to repeat. Please don’t take this sunshine away.
