WordPress has changed its editing format and the new one has proved to be quite challenging. The result is a rather disjointed post and I apologise for that but it really is all I can manage! I haven’t worked out how to adjust the size of the photos so they are on a large setting. Perhaps in a few weeks I’ll have the time to work it all out.
With only 2 weeks left in America, I can’t believe my stay here is finally coming to an end. Although five months is a long time to be away, I have felt very much at home here and not at all out of place. My precious granddaughter brought so much happiness into my life at a time when I was feeling quite jaded. Isla has given me so many heart-warming memories to take back with me: her smile whenever she sees me, her head resting on my shoulder when we dance together, the twinkle in her eye when she’s learnt something new and getting praised for it, her state of reverie when I massage her before bath time, the way she sings when she wants to be heard and so much more. And it’s not only memories of my granddaughter that I will be taking away with me; I’ve watched my daughter become a mother and shared some of that journey with her, and that has been priceless.
