grandma's chuckles:^) . . . "You Didn't Ask God to Let You Be a Boy!"

Do you have any children in your life who aren't actually your grandchildren, but who you love as if they were? I have three such children for whom I babysat for years and who will always hold a special place in my heart. One day when Gabe was four years old he told me how wonderful it is to be a boy. He then said, "Before I was born I asked God to let me be a boy!" Then he looked at me with a very sad look, shook his head ever so slightly and said, "Lynda, you didn't ask God to let you be a boy!" Obviously the only reason I was "stuck" being a girl is because I didn't think to ask God to let me be a boy! Don't you just love four year olds?!!! As you spend time with the grandchildren, or nearly grandchildren in your life, take time to thank God for making them the unique and special people they are and for the joy they bring to your life!
