Memories

Dau #2 said to me , 'Mom when are ya gonna post something' so here goes. Guess I will just be a rambling granny today? This pic is of my grandchildren with their dad. Christmas morn 2008. They were excited from opening all their gifts, but not too sure they wanted to leave them behind to go with dad. We had to assure them they would be waiting upon their return. Huggs & kisses all around, a wonderful memory time, for this was one of the last times they would see grandpa! How lovely their dad let them have Christmas with us, as it was his turn this year.

Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.

Hello Momma
Thanks for dropping and leaving a comment on the cows. They were fun weren't they:))

That was certainly a sad way to end the year but I am sure life will good to you this year. With your family there to help and guide you all things are possible
Take care

That's a wonderful photo. You've been so much in my thoughts over the past few weeks. I hope that you're surrounded by people who are allowing you to grieve in the ways you need to. We'll all be here when you feel like writing, but know you're still in our hearts in the meantime.

That is a lovely photo..I too have been thinking about you. We were at my daughter's house for her birthday and my husband was on the couch after doing all kinds of task for our daughter and I thought that I don't tell him often enough what a great Dad, husband, lover and friend he is....
