For Mother’s Day we had all the kids over for a cook out. During the evening my smallest granddaughter who is five years old brought me her play phone and tells me to push the little bear button and listen to the song. I did as instructed and it played twinkle twinkle little star while she sat on my lap.
Yesterday (Monday) I went home for lunch and was alone in the house and everything was quiet. Her little phone was laying by my chair and I picked it up and pushed the little bear button and that song began to play. Tears almost welled up in my eyes thinking about how my precious little granddaughter wanted me to hold her and listen to that song. I had a moment. One of those that you just know you will remember from now on. One of those impressions that leaves a soft spot on your heart.
In life you never know how many more moments you have. It is crystal clear that while there may be other moments similar to that moment, there will never be another one exactly like it. When I go home at night and when the family comes over, my phone is turned on silent and plugged into the charger. Like that evening, all the people I most love are in the room with me and therefore there is no need to check for messages. I have all the messages I need at that moment. One of those messages was holding my little granddaughter and listening together to the song, twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. KT
