Making Grandma Smile

After two days of rain, Grandma and I are feeling a little cooped up. And Grandma doesn't function as well without her daily walk. Since downpours kind of have a tendency to prevent walks outside, I compromised and took Grandma downtown for lunch today. We got a little corner booth in a restaurant right on Main Street and Grandma was just tickled to look out the windows at all the men setting up for the town's annual fall festival this weekend.

Such a simple moment. Such great pleasure. It's times like these that make up for the mornings like yesterday. And the truth of it is, I'm the lucky one. I get the gift of spending these last years with Grandma, making her smile.
