I loved this j.s.lamb. Brought a tear to my eye, I have to admit.
Yesterday, as we were waiting for his mom to have blood tests, my grandson and I shared a very decadent and chocolate-laden milkshake. Naughty, naughty — it was very nearly lunchtime — healthy tuna salad awaited. The chocolate smeared grin and hug of pure bliss and love I received, made me beyond grateful for the same ‘simple, precious memories’ you write of.
So much to cherish.
