Time Stops

I am a grandma now. Henna and I decided that I will be called "Nona" or is it "Noni"? I already forgot. It doesn't matter! I hold him in my arms and time stops. And sweet peace envelops me.

I remember when my children were infants. Each time, as I held my baby, time stopped. I had no worry. There were no future to worry about, there were no past to correct,...just the present and that was all that mattered. It was my adorable little baby and me and the whole world revolved around us. I had perfect peace.

My grandson, Mateo Alexander, a beautiful little boy is here. As I hold him, the same magic occurred. I am a grandma now.

But while I hold this little boy, time stops...the whole world exist so that I can enjoy this little one. Little Mateo I love you.
