Seventeen years ago my husband’s sister, Holly, walked into our kitchen with her first grandchild in tow.
She went on and on about him.
When they left I said to my husband, “Good grief! What was up with that?! He’s just a grandchild!”
Then we had grandchildren!
Now I absolutely loved having our children. I changed jobs so I could have more time with them.
But…who knew grandchildren were even better?!
We have five… 2 boys – 3 girls.
Our oldest granddaughter turns 13 in May. Her Mother has asked several of us to write her a letter with advice for her teen years. If you have any words of wisdom please send them to me. It would be so special to have my readers share their thoughts with her.
Our other son has twin girls. They will be 4 the end of the summer.
Where did the time go?
And now this brings me to the reason I’m writing this entry today.
One of the twins is in the hospital. She had a seizure…not her first. Even though it was associated with a fever (which is a good thing) because it lasted so long and was so severe they kept her in hospital.
I tell you this in hopes you will stop for a moment and pray for her.
Children are a gift from God, as are grandchildren…but I think our grandkids must be sprinkled with fairy dust as they are just so dog-on adorable. 🙂
When our boys were little I’d tell them every night, “God has a special plan for each of you. Don’t miss it.”
I used to think those plans would be grandiose. However, I now realize I was thinking more on a worldly scale.
God’s great plans for them included their children. Family…the greatest earthly gift He can give us.
Keep our family in your prayers and I will keep yours in mine.
