I have 2 grandsons who are obsessively collecting Pokemon cards. It gives me such pleasure to see the excitement and joy they express when I appear with a new packet for each of them. Let joy be unconfined. Am I trying to ingratiate myself with those two rascals? Well, frankly yes.

Even more rewarding was to find that the older and more reserved of the 2 boys had written a story about the excitement and pleasure he finds in collecting Pokemon cards. Many of his classmates complemented him on his story. I too was touched to read that Grandma’s generosity was cited in the opening sentence! Little things mean a lot!
