"my bea-u-ti-ful amulet"

I just had to share this story with you and I hope it brings a smile to your face like it does mine. 

My husband bought me a beautiful necklace for Mother's Day  and I decided to wear to my daughter and son-in-law's house for Mother's Day. 

As soon as the grand kids saw me they came running,as usual,  for a BIG Grandma hug.  They give the best hugs ever !  Brayden kisses with his mouth wide open like he's going after a piece of food.  Love it, sloppy and all.  This time it was a little different with Delaina, my granddaughter, she's 3 1/2 yrs. old.  As soon as I picked up Delaina, she  said with such excitement in her voice, "Oh Grandma, you have such a bea-u-ti-ful amulet!"  I smiled and said Thank You but I had no frickin' clue what she was talking about.  Then she asked me if she could touch it!  That's when I realized she was talking about my necklace.  My daughter explained to me it is a gift that was given to Princess Sophia from her father and when she wears it she can hear animals talk.  My heart is filling with emotion by this time.  I am in awe how children find wonder in the little things. Periodically throughout the day she would come over and touch my "amulet".

As we were ready to leave she gently took my hand and pulled me down to her  and she whispered ever so softly in my ear, "when you come babysit can you bring the amulet so I can wear it?" 

I smiled the biggest smile ever and said, "absolutely".
Love those kids!
