Pin It Now!
Time is moving at a fast pace and just when I think I have a handle on it I have lost five hours because of a glitch in some technology. ARGH!!!Well, I was able to savor a moment this week when my grandson called me to apologize for his attitude towards me. WHAT APOLOGIZE!!!!! He never has to apologize! That was my first reaction, as I said "oh sweetheart you don't...and before I could get the ..."need to apologize" out of my mouth, my mind switched to practicality and I realized his mom was trying to teach him something. I immediately back pedaled with grandmotherly affection and I told him he was doing the right thing. I was glad that he was sorry, but I was not angry with him. It broke my heart for him to have to say he was sorry. After all he was just being honest. It went down like this.
After speaking with my daughter for a few minutes I asked to speak to Colin who was playing Wii. In the background I heard grumbling and then I heard .."alright just give me the phone so I can get it over with" ....oh my it sounds worse in print then it did when I heard it. It was the first time I felt what it was like to be a pesky grandmother. My little guy was growing up and didn't "love" me like he used to! He spoke to me with hurried answers and I knew he wanted to get back to his game. SO, I said goodbye, and hung up the phone so he wouldn't begrudge the intrusion any longer. Ten minutes later is when I received his phone call to me. I guess his attitude didn't sit well with his mother. (wink)
It made me think of time passing by and leaving us in the dust. One day he will be a teenager and have more important things to attend. I think it is time to slow down and savor some more moments!
