This is my beloved grand-daughter Kennedy. She is my heart. From the moment I first saw her I was totally and completely in love with her. She is smart, funny, beautiful and very thoughtful.
I have always wanted to be a really good grandmother. I wanted to teach my girl how to appreciate nature, how to sew and cook and paint, to love books and many of the good things I have learned throughout my life. Hopefully, I have accomplished much of this. The other day she asked me.."Nanny, are you a teacher?" I replied, "Well, sort of...yes, I guess you could say that I am." And she said, "I think that you are a good teacher. You teach kids how to sew and cook and stuff." I said "thank you Sweetie. that makes Nanny feel really good".
Tears welled up in my eyes. Tears of joy, of gratitude and love. Yup, I know why I am here on this earth.... to learn, to love, to teach. And to be here for little Miss K.
