Seattle--time with family

Monday, April 25, 2011

My husband and I are visiting our middle son, his wife and our amazingly adorable granddaughter who is turning 1 in a few days. It was so good to be with them on Easter. We only see them 2-3 times a year so this is very precious to us.
I always heard that being a grandparent was a very special thing. I can attest to that personally, but one cannot appreciate it fully until they experience it for themselves.

We have 3 granddaughters, ages 2 1/2, 1 1/2, and 1. Any day we will be having our first grandson and in August another granddaughter. We are very blessed indeed!

Raising children is hard work. Seeing your kids grow up to be responsible Christians is priceless, indeed! Enjoying grandchildren is the dessert of childrearing!
Signing off from Seattle with a grateful heart!

    I love that -- grandchildren is the "dessert" of childrearing!

    I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time with your family.

    My only daughter is trying to get pregnant -- is 31 and has been married 6 years -- but no luck so far....

    I know you are counting your blessings!

    Our middle son, Jason and DIL, Carrie were here over the weekend. Now, I am packed and headed to Texas tomorrow - taking my 89 year old Father to his 70th HS reunion and see some Family.

    Life is good indeed.

    Hugs to you, my friend.

    I'm so glad you are having such a great time with your family and able to love your granddaughter. We have one granddaughter, but we don't see her very often. We think she's cute and lovable, too.
