Grasp


Go....Yesterday evening started out filled with laughter and some tears as we grasp the few hours we had with our grandchildren.  All too soon it was time to take them back to their mother house.  Emmie wanted to stay all night, Austin just wanted his mommy. 

Divorce has put my grand children out of our grasp most of the time and brought an ache in our soul that I cover up with a smile. They are too young to understand why I try to grasp them so tight when it comes time for them to go. 

That normal family unit we  wanted for those Grand children is no longer there...divorce had ended that normal and brought a new normal to their lives.   One that brings fresh tear and prayers for the grace to be there for those sweet children.  So I grasp them in a huge huge, plant a kiss on their sweet face, speak positive words of love into their life and watch them leave my grasp.  They wave goodbye Grandma and Grandpa, see you next week.  Then I run into my heavenly Father arms for Him to grasp me tightly while I weep.  In His grasp I am covered with His love that gives me strength to live this new normal life.  Stop (sorry went over a 1/2 minute.
