Another Blessing!

The Blessings just keep coming!!
This month God blessed us with another sweet grandson, and of course his big brother had to be cuddled and wrapped in a blanket too as Mammaw held them both at the hospital!
We spent some wonderful time with them for a couple of weeks, but was so sad when we had to leave today to head back home. Needless to say, I cry when I have to kiss them and say goodbye.
The little grandchildren keep us feeling young. My husband and I even went outside to help Big brother fly his airplane.
That brings back so many memories when I played with my other grandsons who are now in their 20's. I was grandmother in 1981 when I was 35 years old, and thought it was the greatest thing in the world and I still do!! The hardest part is being separated from them with so many miles between us.
We are heading back to Texas and hopefully by next weekend will be back in our new home after 11 months of living with the children when Ike destroyed ours. It has been an adventure.
God is good to us to give us such great blessings with our grandchildren! Now we have 7.

4th of July Memories

Today I was a little sad when I thought back over the years of how fast time has passed by! It just seems like yesterday when my husband and I took our 3 girls to watch fireworks in our home town. That was such a special event for us and my husband enjoyed it so much. It was just a tradition on the 4th to go see the fireworks.

As years passed and they grew up, the Lord allowed us to live close to grandchildren and we got that opportunity with our grandsons and granddaughters! Sometimes I long for those days to be here again! We blink and those years are gone!

I was blessed this year to spend time with 2 of our daughters and our 2 granddaughters, but it would have been so nice to have our middle daughter with us too but she lives out of State. Soon we will see her again. She is expecting her second child, another sweet boy! We can now re-live some things with her 2 boys that we did with our now grown grandchildren, but I am so afraid to blink!! It might all be over! When we are young we do not realize how much we need to capture the moment!!!
During this trial of our life of having to live with our children while waiting for a home, God has blessed us with time with our children. Those things are priceless!!!
