Today is my Grandmothers birthday. She is Claires Great Grandma (obviosly.) However Grandma prefers that Claire call her Oma, and Grandpa is to be called Opa. These are the German words for Grandma and Grandpa. Of course, Claire can't talk yet. She has no concept for labels except for every animal being a Kitty and Jeff and I being MAAA and Dada. So we go along with Oma and Opa and this makes them VERY happy. It is amazing how when we get older little thing, and little people can make our day. I think we should all try to be more content with the small things in our lifes, and not try to wait for happiness in the big things. If we look closely it's amazing how many little things God puts in our way to show us His glory... you just have to have your eyes open to see them. Happy Birthday Oma!
