Gone too long

I have been absent from blogging for too long. I love to blog, I am passionate about taking photos, and have begun to start down a path of doing this for others. While traveling this path, I have been so busy getting photos ready for others, that I haven't taken time to do photos for me.

Add to that a double birthday celebration last week, going to weekly chemo sessions with a dear friend, philanthropic meetings taking up evenings, and then of course the days that I get to watch the sweet grandchildren. Adding it together has been zero in photos for me.

Yesterday for a brief time, there were two grands sitting together, and I was able to capture them. Two grands at the opposite ends of the spectrum. One the oldest, the other the youngest. Middle grand was with his mommy.

Each child is as precious as they are different. This is a good place to be, appreciating what we have.

The weather has been horrid. 100mph winds, rains that seem as if they will never end. Flooding, power outages, and all that goes with storms. I am reminded to be thankful of a warm home, that sits dry and with power. Good health, and loving friends. Yes, there is much to be thankful for.

It's taken #1 grandson a while to be comfortable with the baby. He was always his Uncle's boy, and a little bit of jealousy has surrounded this new baby joining the family. Now he enjoys picking her up and acting like the big guy. No school this week for parent teacher conferences, which means I can visit the big guy without an appointment. I love this snaggle toothed, bed headed boy. He is a darling inside and out.
