I can't begin to tell you how blessed I feel. Having had five children of my own and two step-children, life has been a wonderful adventure. My children still amaze me, even though they now have babies of their own.
Although I secretly would love to be able to spoil one special grandchild, I am so thrilled to have ten young grandkids. They age from one year old to ten years old ... three eight year olds! I spend as much time as I possibly can with them, even though I still live 5 hours away. But the plan is to move close to all my kids and grandkids as soon as is humanly possible.
It's been such a fun pleasure to have the grandkids come visit one at a time during the summers. The littlest ones will have to wait a bit, so I go to visit them at their homes whenever I can. Grandkids are such a blessing! I love them all equally ... they are all different but all such a joy!
