Way back in the day, when I actually blogged on a regular basis, Fridays were dedicated to reflecting on the blessing in my life. I am going to try posting every day this month. Gasp! How will I go from posting a couple, maybe three times a month, to daily? I don't know, but I'm going to try. I may only post a photo with a word or two, but hey, if I'm going to pay every month to keep this space, I need to actually use it, right? Let's get this party started with some happy thoughts.
First of all, I'm so happy that after a summer that seemed to go on forever, autumn has finally made an appearance.
I cannot count my blessings and not mention this one,
Oh my what a gift she has been.
If you had told me when I started this blog that in a couple of years I'd be proudly calling myself Nana, I'm not sure I'd have been happy about the prospect. Now I can't remember life before her.
She fills up my heart in a way I never knew was possible. She makes me feel younger and happier and brighter and just better.
The past couple of years have been filled with changes. Changes I could never have predicted. I'm a nana. My babies are grown and have jobs and are living life as grown-ups. How did that happen? Casey is loving life as a Marine. Something I wasn't happy about in the begining, but has been a blessing. Alyssa loves her job as a psych nurse. Again, not a path I ever expected her to take, but she knows it was what she was meant to do. It makes this mama so grateful!
So does this,
and this sweet guy,
They fill my heart I tell ya! My heart overflows. For that I am so, so grateful.
Happy Friday friends! See you back here tomorrow.
