A Proud Grandma!

My granddaughter enters a book competition at her school.  They have 106 contestants from different grades and they choose five. She’s in fourth grade. The last day of school they have an assembly and they announce the five winners. She was excited and I can see how nervous she was. Finally they call her name and she was running to get to the front. She’s happy that her story has been printed and a copy of the book will be in the school library. She works hard to write her story, however she found that doing her own drawings was tougher.

My little author is working on her second story. She’s getting ready for the fall competition.

I’m a proud grandma.

Open your nearest book to page 82. Take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow.



It’s interesting that my closest book to me at this particular moment was “Pope Francis His essential wisdom”. This is a gift from my younger son that I’m been reading it as a daily guidance. It’s an inspiring book where he speaks about the eternal love of God and it reminds us the mercy and compassion of Jesus.

I turned to page 82 and this is the sentence that I obtain:

“Yes, I am like each one of you; we are all equal, we are brothers and sisters!

-General audience, June 26, 2013

This is a powerful message with all is happening around the world. I wish every person will recognize that no matter what race, color, or religion we all are God’s creation. I admire Pope Francis. He is a loving man of God who not only speaks to the Catholics community but to everyone in the world.

Thanks to my son who thought of me after he spot this wonderful book. He knew I would love it.
