Now, here’s my version:
BUNDLES OF LOVE
There was nothing she could do but smile as her heart filled with joy. What happiness the little bundle in her arms immediately brought to her life. Who knew becoming a grandmother would make you feel so blessed?
She’d heard her co-workers mention their grandbabies but she just didn’t get what all the fuss was about. However, it hit her at the airport soon after she exited the plane from a long transatlantic flight that landed in a European city.
Utter joy and love washed over her when her child placed the small bundle in her arms. Sitting down in the terminal looking at the precious baby, her heart felt all warm and happy. What an overwhelming love she felt for that little baby.
It was hard to explain. She loved her child but the love she felt for her first grandbaby was hard to describe. At that moment she knew she’d do anything for that sweet baby, she’d give her life for that little infant. She never knew before that day what loving a grandbaby could mean.
A couple years later when a second grandbaby was due to be born, she worried she could never love it as she did its sibling. That worry faded quickly though when she held her second precious grandbaby in her arms. Another tiny bundle for her to love.
Are you a grandmother? Isn’t it a wonderful blessing to experience?
