Word(less)ful Wednesday - Grateful


This is a photo of my mother and Mekhi earlier this year. Mekhi no longer sucks his fingers and I am glad that I got this shot. He is clearly grateful for his fingers and the warmth and comfort of grandma's arms. I believe my mother is grateful for FINALLY having a grandchild. Although she looks kinda sad in this photo she is actually watching tv. I caught her in an unexpected moment and I think it is beautiful. In my opinion this photo personifies gratefulness.


For more Wordful Wednesday visit Angie's 7 Clown Circus for WW visit 5 Minutes for Mom.

I love this post and I am excited to feature it on the #gno blog (http://mommygossip-gno.blogspot.com). I was also excited to see you at GNO tonight. Thanks for your enthusiasm, participation, and your spirit. I remember the first time I discovered your blog and we were chatting about volunteering and service. When I saw you tonight, I knew you would be into the topic, because it is so much a part of who you are. I'm glad to "know" you!!!

I know you said she was watching TV but it looks as if she's looking into the future and saying come what may, you can ALWAYS find peace, love and acceptance in my arms.

at first, it did seem like your mom was sad, but i see it now... she's just comforting and loving WHILE watching tv... moms are good at multi-tasking, are they not? and mekhi looks so protected and loved (and content!).

Jewelry Rockstar said...

Nothing like seeing the generation connection. This is loving.

Petula said...

That's a wonderful shot! Your mom looks so young! That's definitely a shot to cherish.

How'd you get him to stop sucking his fingers. My second daughter sucks those same fingers except on the left hand. The baby sucks her thumb, but the other two never sucked their fingers. Neither suck their fingers at daycare or school, but I can't break them at home.

supermommy said...

That is so sweet. I wish my girls could spend more time with my parents.

Rona's Home Page said...

How sweet. Glad to hear he's not sucking his fingers anymore.

very sweet. i think it's cute that he sucked his fingers and not just thumb.

Lisa @ Serah's said...

Awww...see now you're making me wish I was that small again and wrapped in my grandma's arms. Your mother looks like she could be your sister.

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

That is a beautiful picture. They both look like there's no where else they would rather be.

Ms. Bar B: said...

Awww, soo cute and yes, the picture says it all. He reminds me of my little brother, who STILL sucks those exact two fingers =)

Jenners said...

Found your blog while playing Mission Monday. LOVE your blog design...it is so beautiful and fun but still readable! Great job. I'll be back to check out more stuff because you seem to have a lot going on and I've already neglected my housework too long so I've GOT TO STOP. (This blogging is addictive but my husband is fed up that the house is going to hell in a handbasket).

And the Calgon post reminded me that is has been WAY TOO LONG since I took a bubble bath so that is going on my to do list this week!

Thanks!

Joy said...

being the mom of a thimb sucker I can so relate.

Abby LOVED her thumb and we just celebrated last week with her stopping. So congrats to the accopmplishment

ChefDruck said...

My little Juliette sucks her thumbs the exact same way. What a precious picture! So glad that mission monday led me here - and congrats on winning by the way!
