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.

This is part two of the post; Always Say Goodbye

Cordelia is six months old in this picture but it was the only one I had with her mother in it.

Today Cordelia turned one year old and I'll be posting the story of her first birthday party soon.

Thanks for saying Cordelia is cute.
I think the same.

Your little Cordelia story made me cry a little - children are so honest. What a charmer!

I make a lot of mistakes with Cordelia but she always forgives me.

I'm behind on my Cordelia stories so this second half of a story got posted first.
