Rainy, cold, blah Tuesday!!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Good Morning! It is a rainy, cold, yucky day but I am giving thanks that at this point in my life I know longer have to fight the traffic and go to work as I did for 30 years!
Probably the 1 good thing Im enjoying at this age....along with all the aches, pains, COPD, etc that I fight each day...Working at home, lighting my fireplace, staying in my jammies or sweats and enjoying my pups!!!

Today it has been 2 months I have been loving my Food Plan and Spark People
I am thrilled with my progress and all the positive changes I have made.

I am sticking here it seems bur I have added in some carbs which I totally avoided those first weeks.

I'm going to speak of a subject that has me on the verge of tears. My dear GD Hanna (8).
She was here for a sleepover with GG this weekend! She is a wonderful, creative, sensitive, funny little girl.

She's my littlest grand, my last! I love her incredibly.
So when I asked her how was school....her answer floored me.
She said good, her classes are good, her grades are good but......the girls wont play
with her. They tell her to go away. She tries to join in and they run away.
Oh my gosh...when she started to heart broke. I cuddled her and we added the situation to our prayers when we went to bed,
I talked to DD next day. She knew & had called school. Talked to guidance counseler who talked to Hanna. I don't feel thats enough...I want her to go up there, find out exactly what is going on...Of course I want to call out the "mean girls". Kristin is more laid back. So as the grandmother I am praying & asking God's grace that this stop!!!
She hasn't yet said she didn't want to go to school so that is a blessing.
Now Hanna is a very creative little girl. She loves to make up games, play with her toys, she is very independent. She came late and has a 19 year old brother & 17 yr old sister so maybe...Kristin feels this effects her..I don't know & don't care...I want it stopped!

This is all 3 beautiful grandkids couple years ago.
First time we have ever had a situation like this. She went to Sunday School with me on Sunday, went right into a new classroom, came out w/2 little new friends. I really know she is not anti social.
Thankful for being able to vent here. My grandmother's heart is hurting and as usual I want to take action & fix it. I need to pray & believe that God can fix this....but will certainly keep a watchful eye.
Allrighty, going to light my fireplace, make my coconut coffee and get to work!
Thank you Lord for a wonderful time of life & for your faithfulness!!!
Have a great day!

    That's a sad story. Your grandaughter is beautiful! One never knows the reason why little children can be so cruel. Where do they learn how to behave that way at such an early age? How can you possibly explain that to a small child when it's something we don't even understand ourselves. I hope that it will all get cleared up quickly. I pray the good Lord will help you work through this. God bless you and your beautiful family.

    I'll be right over and we can share the fire. I think your DD is handling the situation right at this point. But remind her to stay on top of it. Something isn't right but I can't put a finger on it.

    Your fireplace is so beautiful---
    My grandmotherly heart understands your grandmotherly heart! How upsetting to see our precious ones experience hurts. I hope that this situation can improve for Hanna. It is good to have a resolution with the cooperation of the school. Keep "tuned in" and be an advocate when you can. . .
    My little 2yr old grandson was the victim of a classmate who would bite children every day! These bites were often severe, breaking the skin. I was so upset, I wanted to go bite the kid that was terrorizing the whole group!!! Grrr Grrr

    We all want to protect our babies from life's slings and arrows. I have a daughter of my own that has dealt with mean girls all through school. Hanna only needs one or two friends. I hope it comes about okay.

    Oh Gail, my heart breaks for little Hanna. I, also being a grandmother would want to do more but sometimes God just wants us to pray in these situations while He works them out. emoticon to you and Hanna.
