“Sounds like life to me plain old destiny
Yeah the only thing for certain is uncertainty
You gotta hold on tight just enjoy the ride
Get used to all this unpredictability
Sounds like life” Darryl Worley
Greetings from the not so empty nest! The house is full and the schedules are busy, but as Darryl Worley captured it in a song, it’s life and we are loving it.
We are learning a lot about grand-parenting the balance between spoiling, indulging and respecting Mommy’s wishes. In a multi-generation home I think you have to have all these factors.
Life is busy, crazy but don’t let the fun slip by or little miracles go unnoticed it is all part of this great journey called life. I want to leave a legacy that makes people laugh at all that I gave and did.
It’s Saturday so put on your little kid goggles and go out and play like you did when you didn’t have a care in the world!
April 12th our lives forever changed, we became grandparents. Let me start with our daughter and grandson are healthy and thriving. Our almost empty nest is bustling. We are adjusting and embracing life’s changes as we always do. We had heard all about the love of a grandchild, well rumors hold true. Nine point seven pounds of pure joy and love immediately filled our hearts the day he was born.
When our daughter moved home in her third trimester our friends asked how we would adjust. We were not worried, but just as we adjusted to the almost empty nest we opened our arms and hearts to the fullest nest.
My heart was blessed to be in the delivery room with our daughter – a gift I can never repay and may never in my life experience again. My life transformed as my little girl turned angelic in a c-section delivering our first grandchild – Luke Austin. I’ve never been prouder, more in love or awe as I was that day.
So as Mothers Day approaches my selfish side wants to indulge in me, my maternal side wants to deliver my first time mom girl the best Mother’s Day ever!
Don’t Worry Stay Happy
