Brighten Their Day & Help Them Feel Loved!

The other day when my grandsons were at my house, Caleb was sitting next to me when I told him something which had a huge impact on him. I looked at him and said; “Do you know why I know God loves me?

He looked at me and said; “Because of Heaven.”

I smiled and said; “Yes, being able to one day go to Heaven is one way I know God loves me, but do you know another reason I know He loves me?
Caleb thought for a moment and shook his head.

I smiled, looked into his twinkly, blue eyes and said; “Because He gave you to me!

Caleb’s eyes got big, he smiled the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on his sweet face and he hugged me with a very big Caleb hug!

Yes, this simple conversation helped Caleb understand how big his grandma’s love is for him, and made him one extremely happy boy!

It does not take a lot to communicate love to our grandchildren, family and friends . . . sometimes it is just a few simple words!
