Blessings Friday: Googly Eyes Love

There’s a new man in my life—his name is Merwin.

At the same time I arrived in one terminal after my flight home from Hawaii, my husband was in the next terminal leaving on a business trip. My friend/neighbor Cindy kindly gave me a ride home. And that’s when I met Merwin, Cindy’s adorable grandson visiting with his father from Virginia.

Merwin is a delight—a bright little boy full of awe and wonder about the world, a mind that churns out questions after questions, a memory about every little thing he hears and learns, and a giggle that makes you want to giggle, too.

Merwin made me a gift, having told his grandmother, “I like June, she’s funny”. According to Cindy, this is praise indeed. So now I’m the proud owner of my very own pet rock magnet, complete with googly eyes twirling around as they try to learn everything there is to know in the world—just like its little creator Merwin.

Thank you, Merwin, for your wonderful gift and your friendship!

Dear Reader: I hope this weekend brings you a googly-eyed pet rock magnet you can put on your fridge to remind you there are still wonders in this world to make your heart sing. And I wish you a visit from an adorable little boy whose eyes reflect back love given and received.

That's adorable June! I'm betting you're the grandmother that every little boy wants! There's nothing like a young child to brighten up the day!

June - I am Merwin's mommy and I thought I would post a comment to let you know that he is absolutely thrilled that you posted a picture of his gift to you. I read him your post and he was beside himself with excitement. He has been talking about his new friend, June, ever since he came home from Tucson. Coming from Merwin, that is truly the highest compliment. He usually takes a long time to warm up to someone he doesn’t know, so you must have made a huge impression on him. I have never seen him take to someone so quickly; he is four and my aunt is still trying to win him over! Thank you so much for everything, you really made his day! Also, I can’t wait to try the microwave potato bag that you sent. That’s an awesome idea. As I have said before, I wish I had a tenth of your talent and creativity. Thank you again, we truly appreciate everything!

Merwin's pet rock magnet is adorable, June. and is such a sweet gift from you new friend Merwin. It seems you both made an impression on each other.

I will actually be visiting a little boy soon who who makes my heart sing. :-) I hope he grows up to have the sense of awe and wonder that Merwin has!
