Grandma Great and Rhonda at the airport...

Grandma Great spent the last couple weeks with us, and I have to say her visit was most enjoyable. Sadly, her time with us ended this morning, and strangely, her absence leaves a void in my heart.

We took her to the airport this afternoon and wished her well for her return trip. We embraced near the gate, and quite unexpectedly I felt myself begin to cry. "I love you grandma..." my voice trailed off behind a veiled sob. "I love you too," she said, then turned and walked away. Only once, she looked back and waved. She smiled and all the children waved back.

Such a simple moment, but it was filled with tenderness and love.
