The Joys In My Life~   Leave a comment


With all the hoopla on who will be president, and with all the killings in our world, it is the simple things in life that bring me the greatest joy.

My grandchildren are my loves.

I love them as much as I love my own kids.

They are so wonderful and independent and different in so many ways.

They bring me such wonderful joy.

Bailey is two and a drama princess.

She can turn on the tears faster then she can blink her beautiful brown eyes at you.

She is the smartest two year old child that I have ever met.

Aaron our only grandson is 6 and ornery and independent and quite stingy with his hugs.

He hates being wrong and doesn’t like to share his feelings very often.

Kayla who will be 8 next month, is so incredibly smart and a thinker and always struggling to be accepted for who she is and her quirky ideas.

Keira is 10 and Kayla’s older sister and the two are as different as night and day.

Kayla struggles with her weight while Keira is model thin.   Keira struggles with school while Kayla is as smart as a whip.

Keira always gives Kayla a hard time about everything and Kayla has a heart of gold.

Mirielle is  tall and thin and pretty  and quite independent.

She will be 14 in November.

I am a truly blessed woman to have these five children in my life.

They bring me so much wonderful joy.

And maybe in another year I will get one more.

grandchildren filled weekend   Leave a comment

we have our four youngest grandchildren tonight.

we will get Keira and Kayla at two and then Bailey and Aaron at five.

Bailey has chicken pox so hopefully it will work well if she isn’t too fussy.

her mother said she is in good spirits considering so……

I am taking at least one if not two of the grandkids back to Wilton to house sit and watch their dogs and stay over night because I can’t see making the dogs stay kenneled up for twelve plus hours.

that just seems inhumane to me.

so if Kayla and Aaron want to go with me Keira can stay here and help grandpa with Bailey.

OR Keira can go with me and the other two an stay here.

I don’t see taking all three and just leaving Bailey with grandpa but I suppose that is possible too.



tomorrow we will have them till noon at least and then the rest of the day I will probably spend being a bum.



my flowers are coming up and it is near sixty outside but….that isn’t going to last.

so I may have to cover them some nights if it gets really cold again.

I still have my cold.


In three weeks we will be flying to Florida

daytona beach

and in five weeks my youngest daughter will be getting married.


Busy times are coming…..







cold, cough and grandchildren   Leave a comment

well just when I think I am on the mend I have my cold back


Coughing and sneezing and feeling cold all over again.


we are having our two older grand daughters tonight

Keira  and Kayla.

I haven’t had a weekend with just them in a few months and I miss it.

I love having Aaron and Bailey with Keira and Kayla too and we will have that again next weekend but….tonight it is just the two girls.

Which is great.


daytona beach

I still wish I was at the beach but ……then I wouldn’t get to see our grand children.

grandchildren time   Leave a comment

we have our Keira and Kayla this afternoon and evening while their father works and their mother goes out to dinner with a friend of hers.

not that I mind.
I love spending time with them and it seems like we are seeing them less and less as they get older.

Rick has Bailey today and maybe Aaron later although their mother is off of work so I am not quite sure what she is going to do with her day….

I know she has shopping she wants to do for her upcoming wedding….

I love my quiet time, but I do so love my grandchildren time too.

the best of me   Leave a comment

what is the best of me?

my children and grandchildren

when they hurt I hurt, when they do something that is really dumb, I cringe with the pain it will one day cause them.

my grandchildren are all innocent children and I want nothing more than for them to be happy and healthy their whole lives through.

my youngest son is getting divorced.

his wife has decided she doesn’t want to be married to him any longer

I will not say it is all her fault because I know it isn’t.

My son is his father’s son too, and they are a lot a like in a lot of ways.

No I’m not perfect and have never claimed to be, no one is, however my son and his father sometimes have a hard time admitting they could be wrong.

at any rate, the divorce is going to happen and I ache for my two grand daughters who are 8 and 6.

I hope and pray their parents can be civil and the divorce isn’t too hard on the girls.

God willing they will pull through it with little or no damage done to their little spirits.

Keira will take it harder than Kayla, because Kayla is a happy-go-lucky, I can accomplish anything type of girl.
Keira is a worrier, and will take things very personally.

Keira is the oldest of the two.

Keira doesn’t have Kayla’s confidence.

but I hope and pray they will both be fine with their parents decisions.

if tomorrow never comes   Leave a comment

as I prepare for my vacation here in about twenty four hours, I always think of the what ifs?

what if we don’t live through this?

what if we get in a car accident and die?

or robbed and killed for our car?

maybe I sound a bit morbid but I always have these what ifs going on in my mind.

it could be that for about two weeks now I have had a horrible feeling that something bad is going to happen.

I don’t know if that something bad is about me or someone I love.

I just know I won’t like the outcome.

so as I get ready to travel the friendly interstates to get to Florida, I wonder if tomorrow never comes what then?

I have no fear of dying.

I know I am going to Heaven and will live there with my Lord.

and I know my four children will be fine without me in their lives.

yes they will miss me, but I know deep down they will be fine.

it is my five grandchildren that I worry for.

yes they will be fine too if I die tomorrow or a week from now, but to never see them again or hold them and tell them how very important they are to me,  is heartbreaking.

I love them all so much.

I would hope my children would never let them forget me.

but that would be the only thing that would make me sad about dying.

and that is my wonderful grandchildren.

God willing I get to see them all grow up and have marriages and babies of their own.

but if not………maybe He will let me watch over them from Heaven.

story time   Leave a comment

I have my eight and five year old grand daughters with me.

they stayed over night and will be here most of the day since their mother is playing softball and their father is spending time with my other son Brian.

Both girls have decided they are going to write a story.

Kayla is down stairs with grandpa asking him how to spell words and Keira is up here asking me how to spell words

funny that they both want to write.
I personally love writing stories.
If only my brain and heart would work with my fingers to get it on paper.

weekend full of grandchildren   Leave a comment


We had a full weekend with our four grandchildren

we rented a pontoon boat and spent a few hours there on that soaking up the rays and enjoying the relaxation

then we had the grandchildren at our fair yesterday

it was enjoyable but tiresome as well

My darling Kayla was a bear unless we were doing what she wanted.
I love her dearly but man is she a stubborn little cuss


still it was a great time and I want to make the memories while we can with the grandkids so they will think fondly of  us when we are old and gray and or when we leave this earth.
Family really is the most important thing next to God, who of course gave me this wonderful family


This is Kayla, Me, Keira, Rick and Aaron
Mirielle was busy with her mother and didn’t get to join us

It’s the little things   Leave a comment

My darling Kayla stayed over night last night
I love this child so very much
No not anymore than I love the other three, but she is so innocent yet in so many ways and so willing to give hugs and kisses where the other three aren’t.

Last night as we were getting ready for bed, she said “Nana I’m cold” I said “Snuggle with me and we will keep each other warm”
so she scoots really close to me and shares my pillow with me and touches my face
“Nana you make my heart smile” she whispers.
I kiss her little cheek and say “You make my heart smile too my little love”

Grandchildren are so exceptionally precious.

my exquisite gifts from God.

gone a while   Leave a comment

now that I don’t have a computer at my fingertips at work, I find it hard to find time to write a blog

I use to have so much to say

now I struggle to find something to write about………..

nothing much changes in life.

work and home and spending as much quality time with my grandchildren as I can.
I love them so dearly and they are so precious

this past week Mirielle turned eleven and Kayla just turned five today

they are all so wonderful


My husband is having both knees replaced two weeks from today

not sure why he is doing both at the same time

there is no way I would do it that way but whatever……..

I don’t look forward to it and it isn’t even happening to me, but that is another story……..

one best left unsaid………

I wish I could write.
I have been reading a lot but I just can’t write.

it pains me


well on ward and upward right?
