First snow!

I’ve been sick with the flu taking a lot of meds.  However, I wake up this morning looking at this beauty.

This beauty makes me want to begin Christmas decoration. I’m blessed for this beauty, no matter if I’m still sick.  I’m going back to bed, still not feeling good.

I express my love to my kids and grandkids in different ways and my favorite is texting emojis with hearts. Yesterday, I went to pick up my grandkids from school. As soon they enter the car I ask how was their day, if they have homework, and “I love you”. However, when I went to pick up my oldest she’s in middle school, her reaction a typical teen. Like any girl of her age, she grumbles, looks tired, and rolls her eyes. So, when I ask regarding her day, this is her response “same as every day grandma and I know you love me. Don’t need to tell me”.

I kept quiet and turn on the radio. My other two grandkids who remain in the back of the car immediately say “we love you, grandma”. I smile and we switch the conversation to something else.

My oldest since she turns 13 she’s quieter, grumpy, and her only concern her best friends. We use to talk and now our long conversations are quick and I missed it. I’m aware is a typical teen and it will pass. However, I want her to understand she can count on me for anything.

After we got to the house, she gave me a hug and whisper in my ear “I love you grandma”.

Tragedy in Las Vegas

Please pray for those we lost last night in Las Vegas and for their friends and loved ones. I don’t understand why these senseless acts continue causing so much pain and heartache. It’s a helpless feeling watching this and not knowing what to do to ease the suffering. We can help by changing ourselves, let’s be kinder and more loving to everyone we meet. Smile at a stranger. Say a kind word to a co-worker. Make time for a child.
Let’s create a ripple effect and honor those lost by being better people.

May God bless and hold close the innocent killed in this senseless tragedy.
