We have a child's oak rocker in our living room. When my 19 month old granddaughter was visiting she liked sitting in this chair. While I was watching her I was reminded of another little girl that used to sit in that chair and rock. Then I thought about the grandmother that bought the chair. I never imagined how my mom must have felt over 30 years ago.....she was a new grandma purchasing a little rocking chair for her first grandchild. I am pretty sure of the emotions she must have felt as I have bought two little oak rocking chairs for my grandchildren. I was so very excited both times. Perhaps I will ask my mom how she felt. She is 80 now and I love the way she loves her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Happy memories all around!! One of my mom's favorite sayings is "what goes around, comes around." I am finding this to be true as I get older.
