microscope heart: diane

this week's microscope heart post comes from diane at southhamsdarling. diane was one of my first blog friends when i started and always takes time to write the sweetest, most thoughtful comments. her love for her daughters and her grandchildren is so evident in her posts. this is a beautiful woman who values family, fun and adventure, and she does it all with such grace and class. happy to call you a friend, diane.

For me it is when I ring the doorbell of my daughter's home (who, fortunately, live just five minutes away from me).  She opens the door and my two little grandchildren (aged just 3 and 19 months) hear my voice, and rush out to meet me.  It is a real scramble as they both try to reach me first.  They are then both climbing up my legs, and I have to bend down and scoop the two of them up in my arms, and we have big cuddles.  At that very moment, I realize just how blessed I am.
