It has been a bloody and awful week in the world - brought close to home by the Virginia Tech shooting. However, this Friday afternoon was blissful here. I spent it with all three grand kids at their house - just an ordinary afternoon. Zachary and I walked home from HEB on a sparkling spring afternoon, read stories, played with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. KK and Danny came home from school and we all worked on picking up toys. Two neighborhood boys came over to play with Danny. KK talked with her best friend on the phone. We ordered pizza, baked cookies and watched (can't believe I'm admitting this) Scoobie Doo II on video. It was completely gof and KK loves it so much she has memorized it and recited with the actors - quite well. Danny fell asleep during the movie. Bob arrived tired but safe from Corpus and Joanna and James from work. It was completely ordinary and utterly precious, a time without conflict or pressure, just precious time together. A real blessing.
