Today my first grandchild turns five.
I wasn't sure I was ready for her when she got here.
We became friends as soon as we looked into one another's eyes, though.
With her around the days seem brighter and there is never a dull moment.
She constantly shows me a new perspective of the world.
The simple things become adventurous discoveries.
Everything sparkles when she smiles.
Her laughter makes the sun shine brighter.
Wherever she is, everything seems to dance on ballerina tiptoes and tap out a staccato beat.
She is so excited about turning five.
I'm not quite ready
