Today I take off my storycatcher hat and put on my Grannyhood hat. It's the first day of school for my granddaughter. She's headed to kindergarten and to a life that will never be the same. When it was my daughter and my son, I was so caught up in life and getting them ready on time that I didn't have a chance to think about what a profound day the first first day of school really is.
Today I ponder. I pray. I wonder what her little brain is absorbing. I'm sure I'll hear all about it this evening.
Embracing the Grannyhood,
