Today is my day!
I've had a little trouble with this "blog" thing, trying to figure out what I wanted to write. Its a little different from the days of my youth when I wrote each day...things like, "Today was boring! I didn't do anything fun!" So I have been looking at other blogs, at what other people have considered things worth writing about and I have wondered, "do I have anything worthy of the written word??"
So...of course, for me, I am a bit of a broken record because most of my "worthy" thoughts always seem to turn to my children and grandchildren. When you reach this stage of life, is there really anything else MORE important? I guess my answer is NO!
My children have always been a huge part of my life. I quit school my senior year of college to marry my best friend and start my family. I never regretted a moment of that decision. My children, my husband, have all lead me down a merry road and now, my grandchildren have added a depth and dimension to my life that I could never have imagined! My life has been good and rich and full and filled with that deep, satisfying kind of love, all because I was blessed with 5 great kids.
Today is my last day of work, prior to spring break and my month long trip to New Jersery. I have had a hard time thinking of anything else. I've had the privilege of being present or close by, for the birth of all my G-kids, except for our little Jeven, that I did see about a month after his birth. The joy and anticipation of such events is beyond anything I thought it might be! Just when I thought my heart couldn't hold any more love, God gives me a beautiful little baby to hold in my arms.....certainly a gift, if not one of His greatest treasures. And the happiness I will see in the eyes of this baby's parents, is worth the sacrifice it took to bring her into the world. I am so gratiful to my Heavenly Father for the promise of eternal families, that we can all be sealed together forever. I could never imagine my life without my wonderful husband and the family we created together. I am especially thankful today, for my good husband and the encouragement and support he has giving me to make this trip to Halley's. I could not be as strong, without him.
To My Family......
I love you all.....thank you for letting me be your mother!
