A Grateful Life
I'm loving life right now.
It is Friday afternoon. I got out of work early. A three day weekend to look forward to enjoy. I will enjoy my favorite choice of cocktail - cranberry juice and vodka.
I will not set the alarm clock. Well, I may be awaken by Lando. He will need to relieve himself and I would rather he do it outside and not on my carpet.
I no longer have little ones who depend on me to take care of their every need. I have graduated to being the grandma.
I am the grandma, who children visit and ask for cookies and gives them willingly.
I am the grandma, who lets them play with the garden hose and lets them get soaked to the bone.
I am the grandma, when the kids start to get cranky, I call their mother to handle it.
I am the grandma that will let the kids yell at the top of their lungs and joins in the fun.
Life is good. I enjoy being a grandma. I enjoy being a wife and mother. I enjoy being me.
On this special weekend, I will also remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives so that others may be free. I will think of the families that were left behind. The families who will honoring the loved ones that won't be coming home.
I am very blessed. I am very grateful that my son, who served his time in the Air Force, never saw combat and is able to come home.
I will raise my glass this weekend and I will toast to yesterday, today, and hopefully for tomorrow.
God bless my family
God Bless all the military!!
