These Little Feet
Oh the sweetness! These little feet belong to my grandson, Simon. We have a little ritual when he comes to visit Nana. I get out the ice cream and scoop some in a small bowl for the two of us. It's vanilla, because his Mommy says he can't have chocolate yet.
We start out with me sitting on the kitchen floor and Simon standing up facing me. I put the first spoonful in his little mouth. He likes it.
By the 2nd or 3rd bite, Simon has turned himself around and wiggles himself backwards up into my lap. If my legs aren't situated just right, he pushes them over so he can snuggle up real close.
We finish the bowl of ice cream in this position. It is all I can do not to feed him more than he should have. I don't want this to end.
Every time we sit like this and I look down at his little feet, I thank God for him. I pray that he will want Nana to tell him about Jesus - sitting just like this.
