During this season, we are all reminded to be thankful. Oh, that gratitude would be a part of every person all year long ,not just at Thanksgiving. Often it is the thing I run to when I feel down or blue. I make myself think about those things I am thankful for and how blessed I am and everything gets better.

I have been sick for over two weeks, and when I got far on the road to recovery I started feeling bad again-it was a tooth that was almost abscess and giving me some pain and feeling bad. Two things happened-I had a friend help me find an emergency dentist who understands people with dental anxiety, and secondly he did a root canal and I feel better.

I got the sweetest message yesterday that made my day, my week, my year.


It was from this sweet princess…

Dear. Meme.   I.  Love.  You. You. Are. One. Of. The. Best.  Grandmas.    I.  Am.        Going.  Too.  Be. Happy.  When.  We.  Move.   Because.  I.  Will. Live.   Close.  To.  You.       Xoxo. Love.  Emma

She sent it as a message from her Mom’s Iphone. The sweetest thing is she just lives down the street less than a quarter of a mile, but they are moving to my end the block and will be even closer. I sometimes stop and wonder what good thing I ever did to be so blessed to have the love of my sweet grandbabies.  Just the thought of them make my heart glow with love.Ryder

Last weekend Ryder,  my sweet little grandboy spent the night, and a day or so later I saw some of my things moved around with his plastic dinosaur on top and I stopped and remembered the sounds, the smells, the laughter and singing while he was here.

I love being a MeMe and I am thankful for my children who are striving to be good parents.

Thankful-yes that’s me! My cup runneth over!
