feeling or showing pleasure or contentment
As many of you know our grand-girl is from Uganda and her background is a sad one leading up to the time she was adopted into our family. Although she was young when our daughter and son-in-law adopted her she still has some scars and we don't even know what many of those are because she was abandoned. With that being said, this girl laughs all.the.time! She and her little brother stayed with us for a while yesterday and she kept giggling and laughing over things that didn't seem all that funny to me. So I asked her why she laughed so much. Her reply was.....
"I guess because I'm happy!"
There was a lesson there, Folks, and it didn't go unnoticed by me.....
because I sincerely believe it was meant just for me!
"I sing because I'm happy.
I sing because I'm free.
His eye is on the sparrow,
And, I know He's watching me!"
This made me tear up this morning. That precious girl is happy! And oh yes Deb.....We can sing because we are free and be Happy! Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
That is precious, a good lesson to learn from such a little girl.ReplyDelete
Love this story of your granddaughter and I hope I "grow up" to be just like her. I think we all probably need to laugh more. Thank you for sharing about her and giving the reminder I need.ReplyDelete

It is amazing to see such joy in what could be such different circumstances. How blessed she is to have a mother, father and grandparents to love her now, all reasons to be happy! What a delight to get to spend some time with such a sweet child who is thankful! Blessings to you sweet friend :)ReplyDelete
