See the sunshine in her soul


Magpie has a love of all things bright, shiny and new. She loves new stories, new things, new people, new places. There is however one thing, or rather one person quite old that she loves...

Great Grammy
Indeed Magpie seems to have a special place in her heart for older (*ehem*old) people. She knows there is something special about anyone resembling a grandma or a grandpa and something even more extraordinary about a GREAT grandma or grandpa. This may be a trait in many children...my nephew thinks the closer you are to 100 the better because that is an awesomely big number. It surprises me at times though because Magpie is so on the move and constantly demanding so much energetic attention. With true delight she crawls up into our friends' grandparents laps, takes elderly people at church by the hand and invites them to our home. So, when she got to spend time with her very own Great Grandmother imagine her delight. My grandmother was likewise delighted to be the apple of someone's eye at age 87.

I think she has a really lovely gift, that Magpie of yours, in enjoying the grammies and grandpas of the world - not everyone gets it, but the elderly can be quite magical.
