The Grandmas

What would a young couple do without their moms in times like these? Grandmas are some of the world's most unsong heros. One minute there's a mess and the next a clean kitchen, with a grandma holding a dishrag. One minute there's a pouting toddler and the next a giggling grandma and grandson on the couch. One minute there's a crying mother and the next a laughing daughter and mom, sharing stories of birth, babies, and breastmilk.

With new toys and take-out they swoop in to the save the day. One could almost see a red cape flying behind them in the wind. I truly am thankful for the grandmothers that He has given to my sons. I hope that I will be like them one day.
