Birthdays

Daily Prompt:  Tend, Simplify

Today I get to celebrate two of my favorite people’s birthdays.  My grandson Andrew turns fourteen today.  I can’t believe the years have passed so quickly.  I tend to still think of him as a little boy.  He certainly is growing into a fine young man.  His mother, however, isn’t always convinced.  She’s in the teenage shock years.

I chuckle and tell her he is just like you.  To that, she asks how I ever put up with her.  I simplify my answer by just saying it was illegal to murder your kids and my reward for not doing so is my grandchildren.  🙂

The other birthday is that of my youngest granddaughter, Isabella.  She turns two today.  She has turned into a toddler who is smart, funny and simply one of the brightest lights of my life.  Unfortunately, she lives far away and my only visit with her will be via facetime.  I am not really complaining, just wishing I could be with her in person.

Tomorrow all the family with the exception of my son’s family will be going out to dinner to celebrate Andrew’s birthday.  I am blessed to have him living close.I hope we can also get Isabella on the phone so we can celebrate a little with her too.

This modern world with cell phones that allow visits across miles is wonderful.  What a great time we live in.  I remember the show the Jetsons.  It was an animated futuristic show that had picture phones they used.  Who would have thought that they would become a reality that everyone used?

Today I will be spending the day at my granddaughter Alannah’s dance competition.  The kick off of her season is today and thankfully it is being held at the local community college.

God has truly blessed me with a wonderful family.

Have a wonderful day!

    I’m sure there are lots of grandparents who would agree with your comment about your reward being the grandchildren. Cute post.
