I Forgive you Grandpa
"I came by to say I'm sorry Cordelia."
She had cried three hour the night before because I didn't say goodbye.
I stood in the door waiting for her pout to change to a smile.
"Please forgive me Cordelia. I never want you angry with me. I'll always say goodbye."
Amanda my Daughter-in-Law held Cordelia in her arms.
"Do you want to go to your Grandpa?"
Cordelia made a noise that told us both that I would need to work harder for her forgiveness.
"You don't have to come to me Cordelia. I know I made a mistake."
Her head tilted down to hide her smile. The smile said I forgive you Grandpa but don't let it happen again.
I came in the house of my son and daughter-in-law and Cordelia let me hold her.
We played our game of where is Grandpa's hat and laughter filled the small house from a little girl.
I said goodbye and left Cordelia with love in her eyes.
