"Precious Mimi Moments"


I must share some Special Moments with you. Last night I was lying in bed watching t.v. and the phone rings....It was my daughter, Steph telling me that Carter, my middle grand-son started to cry because he misses me and wanted to talk to me. She gave the phone to Carter and these were his words "Mimi, I miss you and I LOVE you so much" and he was sobbing so hard. I told him that I missed him and loved him too and that I would see him Friday night and we are going to make a special surprise.....a Gingerbread house! That seemed to help just a little.....then his brother Noah wanted to talk, then Gray wanted to talk....which was the funniest conversation with a 2 year old....he said "Hi Mimi....doggy went poo poo"....well, they don't have dogs but I do, so maybe he saw one of my dogs go poo poo and remembered that. He continued on in his 2 year old jibberish and I could hear Steph and the rest of the family laughing at him....

I can't tell you how good that phone call made me feel....to know that I am so LOVED by these 3 little Angels! They keep me going....I tell you! After the week I have had, that was the medicine I needed. I told Steph, don't ever hesitate to call me when they want to talk to me...I don't care if it is 2:00 am....I will always have time for them. I am so thankful I only live 20 minutes away!

It was a Great day after all! I even had a surprise visit at work from my son, his wife and my grand-daughter, Abby. I am one Very Blessed Mimi!
P.S. I will post our Gingerbread house after we complete it tonight. The picture at the top is not mine....I just thought it looked good! Wait til you see Ours....Noah, Carter, Gray & Mimi's Gingerbread house....Will appear on tomorrow's blog.....Stay tuned, you don't want to miss it!

Well this post brought this Momal to tears this morning! I remember when mine were that small and missed me like that! I 'miss those days' . . . they've gone on to focus on other things that are more important in their lives! Every once in a while I get a phone call from them tho!

They love their Mimi so much. I bet they could have a gingerbread house like that if Gray wasn't involved!!
