Just how much love can one HEART hold?

Just how much love can one heart hold?  I ask myself this question not knowing if I will ever know the answer, not sure that I want to know the answer.
I was at a group meeting last night with friends and neighbors and they began to ask me about my new grandson, Jackson.

Well as you might imagine my eyes lit up and I began to gush.  I proceeded to let them all know that he was better than a new puppy and I can't stop kissing him.  It's true, I'm one hundred percent over the moon about the little guy.  I'm like a junkie, I have to have my Jackson fix every day.  My daughter has been given instructions on the days that I am not able to see him personally, she is to send me a picture on my phone. 
It's not often I don't see him every day, he's only three blocks away, yes that right three blocks.  Some days I walk those three block just to see him sleeping.  It's amazing to look at him and know he is perfect in every way, fresh and full of wonder.  He has his whole life in front of him.  I can't help but wonder what kind of boy will he be,  will he be kind and sharing?  What kind of man will he be, will he be strong and giving.  At the same time I ache for the sorrows that I know this life holds for all of us, but I smile with the thought of all the joys to come as well.  I never really knew my grandmothers when I was young, one passed before I was even thought of and the other just before I turned four.  I remember little bits and pieces about her and wish I had more, but cherish what I do have.  I wonder was her heart bursting at the seams.  For I only have one grand child and I can hardly contain that love, she had five when she passed. 

Ah love, it is an amazing thing, as well is the heart.  I'm glad to know the heart is ever changing, every growing, making room for more love, what a beautiful gift that is to have.  I think that's why I love the Grinch so much, he learned that his heart could grown 10,000 times it's size, and all because of the love of one Cindy Lou Hoo. 

Boy can you just imagine the size of the Lords heart with all the love he has for us, golly for just me alone my blessings have been without number.  I am truly grateful not to know, "just how much love one heart can hold" because that gives me a life time of trying to find out.  May you to have those same blessings.
