Life is grand

When I watch how each of my grand-children interact with the puppies, I think I am the luckiest person on earth! I love kids and I love dogs….the two together doesn’t get any better! Last year at this time our son David had just gotten married, so we had a new daughter. Their wedding was so amazing. It was such a powerful moment when they said their vows. I felt so proud of the man he has become, and the choices they have made. Two weeks later Nate and Kelly gave birth to our first grand-daughter, Avery Evelyn! What a miracle. Perfect eyes, heart, fingers! Then four days later Sean and Christie had Elaina Evelyn. Well, I am the happiest grandma in the world!! Both girls are named after my mom, one of the most giving and loving people I have ever known. To see her legacy of love live on in my children, and now grandchildren is so amazing. This week the work really steps up, as the mothers take less care, and we take on more….but in all the business, I love taking time to drink in the moment, and watch my grandson run around screaming in delight as the puppies chase him. Life is grand.
