Thankful for 2014

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas. Spending time with my new grand babies and my family was so much more than anything I opened under the tree this year. I know that I didn't always feel this way. I really used to be all about "What" I got instead of who I spent time with. 

But as I get older I realize that I can buy those things any old time I want. I can NOT have my kids around me any old time. So it has become much more important to be with them doing what ever makes us all laugh and enjoy ourselves. 

So I will leave you with a couple of pics that make me smile and hopefully they'll give you a smile too!

 These three littles are such a delight in my life.
I didn't think I'd want to be a gramma before I looked REALLY old. But now that I have these boogers, I'm thrilled. If any of you are weary of becoming a grandparent. . . just don't fret. It's really not so bad!
And this is all of my family. My son is behind me with his wife in front of him and I'm holding his first child. His wife is holding his second child. My son-in-law is beside me with my daughter next, holding their first and only right now. My husband is behind my daughter. My daughter lives in Pearland, TX, so it's especially wonderful when I get to see her together with my son and his family. 

As we are ready to bring an end to the 2014 year, I have a lot to be thankful for. . . 2 new grandchildren and a wonderful family to love and support me. 

I hope you can take the time to push aside any worries or frets and look for the good in your year. Then kiss it goodbye and get ready for 


Thanks for leaving me a comment after grabbing one of my ideas! It's like leaving a tip for a job well done!
