delight

Absence does make the heart grow fonder and reunions are a delight.
My tiny granddaughter has been missing her Aunt and has spoken her name wistfully. She has called her in the hallways of our home and even announced firmly that she wants to see her "now."
Family gathered for a special supper last night. As my daughter climbed the stairs, my granddaughter cried out her name with such joy. She clung to her Aunt like a little tree frog, smothered her with kisses and  laughed giddily at inside jokes.
Even very young children have learned the lesson that love once given, craves more.
