Saturday evening Katherine and her mom, Ellen, stayed over at our campsite. (Ellen is my daughter.)
She and her Pepe’ built a great campfire.
Katherine calls her strength “campin’ muscles”.
The next morning, Katherine and I got up first. I had coffee, she had hot chocolate. We sat outdoors,in the woods, enjoying the early morning sun. The birds were singing and we also heard crickets. It was a beautiful sharing time for us both!
The very next morning, Katherine came to my house for day care. She asked for a hot chocolate in the very same kind of cup that she had used Sunday in the woods.
As she was sipping, she looked at me with a twinkle in her eye, “Grandma? Remember when we sat in the forest, listened to the birds and enjoyed the morning?”
” Yes, Katherine, I really enjoyed that too!”
She sipped a little more then looked at me. She gave a deep sigh and dreamily said,” Those were the days.”
I guess her “old” days are in creation. Reflecting upon them means thinking of just yesterday. 🙂
