Yesterday, we celebrated two birthdays. My son, daughter, three grandkids and my PG, all got together to celebrate one belated birthday (Happy Birthday, Jim!) and one birthday coming up this week (Happy Birthday, PG!). Because these two birthdays are only a couple weeks apart, and due to everyone's busy schedules, we usually combine the celebrations. My daughter chose a kid friendly place where the kids could make their own personal pizzas. My Pi (the name actually uses the Greek symbol for 3.14159265--how cute!!) was very accommodating and we truly had a lot of fun. As I was taking pictures, the manager offered to take a group picture.
The absolute best part was when I looked at my two grandsons making faces at each other, my son & daughter chatting away about music, PG sitting next to me, and my granddaughter sleeping in my arms. At that moment, I said to myself, "This is my life. And I couldn't ask for more."
I am so incredibly blessed. I absolutely adore my kids and (what's a word that goes beyond adore? where's my thesaurus??)... well, let's just say I'm head over heels in love with my grandkids. And PG truly is the love of my life.
I just wish this for everybody. Many times, when you really take a step back and look at your life, you'll find it's the little things that offer the greatest blessings. So tell me, what makes you feel blessed today?
