Did you ever see the sun rise in the west? I did just this morning.
From the west wall of my bedroom, beams of warm sunshine flooded the place. They entered through the smiling blue eyes and round pink cheeks of my one-year-old grandson. His little boy lips parted to show off a happy grin filled with eight white baby teeth.
As he peered between the wooden dowels of the oak heirloom crib his Grandpa had made, little Davey unleashed his charm. With his baby voice, he gurgled out dozens of vowels and syllables. Apparently his night of rest had left him eager to have a good morning chat with his stuffed puppy dog and his sleepy Grandma.
Rolling myself over, I lifted my eyes to see his exuberant countenance. Though I felt groggy, his cheerful smile invited me to shake off the last lingering moments of my sleep and to interact with him. I mirrored his attitude as I welcomed his sweet “good morning.” Raising my hand, I waved to him. Davey’s little nose wrinkled up as a sunshiny smile spread across his face. He raised his chubby hand and jerked back a wave for Grandma.
As a first-time Grandma, I responded with whole-hearted applause.
Not to be outdone, this little cherub signed, “Thank you.” His gesture resembled that of “throwing kisses.” Needless to say, he managed to melt my heart.
