You'll always be my little girl...

Today I went and spent some time visiting with my Grandma. She is recovering from a knee surgery and so had to miss out on traveling to California for my cousin's wedding with Grandpa. (Shout out to Matt and Jill, I heard it was beautiful, congratulations on your marriage!)

I helped her with her email and facebook, which had gotten backed up while she was recuperating. Then we just sat and chatted while I worked on binding the doll quilt. After awhile she decided she was ready for some lunch, so I made us some sandwiches. Since I haven't cooked in her kitchen very often (if ever) I kept calling out and asking where I could find things. I asked her where I could find a sharp knife to cut up an apple. She told me where they were and then added, "I have a really, really sharp knife. But I don't want you to use it because you might cut yourself."  I stopped cold for a moment and then started to laugh, "Despite the fact that I am 32 years old, have three children and have been cooking for them for years, which often means using sharp knives?"

I also told her that that made my day. It's good to know that she is still looking out for me and wanting to keep me safe. I like knowing that I'll always be some one's little girl.

You always have a great story for the day. I wish I had that same talent.
