What a week this has been....so blessed to have a visit from our Texas son. Do we ever get over being Mom's? I don't think so. I have always thought the children are works in progress and it is fascinating watching them grow and evolve.

This son has two children in college and one that will be graduating high school in June...then he will have three in college. Now, he is watching them find their niches in the world, and I can see he is as proud and as fascinated as I have been.

I see by the clock his plane is just about to take off and while I am feeling a bit teary, I look forward to seeing him and his beautiful family this winter......we are going to run away for two months to Texas, Arizona and California and escape the worst of winter here. In the meantime, there is much to get done like all the spring planting, so...
back to busy...

I love love love watching our children grow up. You are so lucky to see your children watch their children, and, of course, your wonderful grandchildren!

That is great news that you will escape the winter! Good for you. I need to fire up that T-Bird and head south soon! It's windy and chilly here already. Okay, I'll be doing it in my dreams.

Enjoy being a Mother always, & seeing the changes in my children as their children grow. I love to remind them, 'gee Mom & Dad weren't so bad after all, right?' We do get some sheepish grins.

TY for sharing. Have a beautiful weekend. tTFN ~Marydon
