Yesterday was a good day. Sunday is usually our day with our two sweet granddaughters. It is a day I look forward to as my non - stress day. There is something about 2 little girls that just puts you in a different and better frame of mind. We go to church on Saturday nights right now so Sunday is our family day. Our daughter and hubby came over about 12:30pm after their church service and were going to drop off the girls so they could go out but decided to stay and eat with us. Son, Johnny just arrived home from his church and so we all sat down for an impromptu dinner. Sometimes those are the best of times...the unplanned ones. We had a great time talking - telling the usual family jokes and making some lighthearted fun of each other. It is great to finally see my son and daughter becoming friends as they are now adults and beginning to appreciate the unique very different people they are. Uncle Johnny loves his nieces and princess Kaitlyn loves him..Anna is not too sure about him yet....maybe it's the tattoos? (:
Anyway after dinner John and I took the girls to the mall and did all the things grandparents are suppose to do.....like take them on the carousel, go to the toy store, get an organic chocolate milk at Starbucks and buy licorice at the candy store. I hope mommy is not reading this right now. (: We came home and colored and put stickers in sticker books and had a tea party.
After everyone went home I just sat and thought about what a good day it was. It is days like this that I remember all the blessings that the Lord has given me.
Proverbs 17:6 (New Living Translation)
Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the mature; parents are the pride of their children. (this scripture was slightly changed from aged to mature) (;
