She joined our family in 2004 –
our second grandchild.
Through the years she’s brought smiles
and more joy
than you can possibly imagine!
Happy 14th Birthday to Hayley, our Thanksgiving Baby!!!
Still bringing the giggles! We are so thankful for you, sweet thing!
I’ve been keeping this blog going for over 14 years now, and one of the main reasons I keep at it is because I know that somewhere ‘out there’ someone will be checking to see if I’ve written anything lately! I’ve occasionally expressed some angst about this blog, since in many ways it’s not a very defined blog. When people ask what I blog about I confess that it’s a little bit of travelogue mixed in with some ministry stories combined with reflections on life with some (very) cute grandchildren thrown in every now and again. All hopefully seen through eyes of Faith. I guess I would just say it’s a Life Blog?
You’re a mixed bag of friends, you know. Some of you I know well and some of you I have never met. Yet we’ve managed to connect through this interesting medium called Blogging. I love it when you comment and ask questions. I love it when I know dear friends are reading and keeping up with our travels and ministry and cute grandkiddos. And I love it when new friends introduce themselves and join in the conversation.
So on this twentieth day of November, I’d just like to say a simple, but heartfelt, Thank You to all of you have come by visit my little corner of the internet. Whether this is your first visit or you’ve been following along since we started out those many years ago, you are deeply appreciated and valued.
Praying you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Two of our SOWER couples are pulling out tomorrow and heading home, so we had a lovely end-of-project luncheon today. After we had eaten we went around the table and each of us shared something we were thankful for.
Family and the Oakridge community were high on the list of thanksgiving. I am indeed thankful for those things. But my thankfulness this day was headed in a slightly smaller direction.
While Lana and I were busy putting up Christmas decorations,
three little ones were busy playing in the background.
Listening to those little cousins playing and giggling and yes, sometimes even squabbling, did this Gramma’s heart good!
Four Days until Waco (3 grandboys)
Forty One Days until Columbus (7 grandkiddos)
