We had visitors from California a few days after Christmas. For about six of those days, all was lively in our household. Our cats had not seen that kind of activity in our home, for a very long time. They decided to spend most of their time under a bed. For two of the youngsters, it was a first time visit to Oregon. It was special to spend quality time with all of them. We had delicious meals prepared by the California chefs and it seemed that after they left, I kept finding little food gifts in our cupboards. There was a lot of laughter and many opportunities to observe little hands at work, putting legos and puzzles together. Their grandpa G is still needing medical attention. It will be a lengthy time frame of more surgery and recovery in the coming months. Their visit was a blessing and a high point for us.
It’s that time of year.. Current pictures of my grandkiddos is always a blessing and much appreciated. They certainly are a gift from God. As I continue on my journey of 100 days of thanks, I am grateful for the opportunity to observe their growth, and see them as I can. I applaud my children, for the great job of raising their children, in happy and nurturing households. Would you join me and others, this new school season and pray for all children that are going to school? For the little one’s in pre-school and daycare centers, and daycare providers and teachers.
With these sweet faces..
I think most of us have hopes and dreams tucked away in our hearts. For most of my years of being a grandmother, I have been a long distant one. If it wasn’t many miles there have been other circumstances. So, I have not been the doting grandma, able to hold and rock the baby in my arms or take them to the library as I used to observe other grandmother’s when I was working at a library. But with what opportunity I have had, I have made the most of it and held each experience dear to my heart.This weekend was eventful and I had 24 hours of full-time grandmothering and after the sweet girls left I found out that one of my daughter’s delivered her first child. I thank the Lord! Mr.G got discharged from the hospital on Saturday and has a brand new shoulder replacement and so lots of excitement. My cup is full and overflowing…
Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6
