I spent yesterday in Charlottesville, Va. two and a half hours away from home in an apple orchard atop Carter's Mountain with my 8 month old great-grandson (and his Nana, Papa John and Mom). His little eyes took in everything, things we adults would have not paid any attention to... the tractor going by pulling a trailer full of apples, the feel of a pumpkin stem
The sound of metal strips when you run your fingers through them.
Just so curious about this world we live in.
And, that was renewal for me... to put grief in the back recesses of my mind and to watch this adorable child learn and grow.
It was a good day!!
