Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
I get the wonderful blessing of being able to watch my precious grandson two days a week.
He is absolutely amazing. He fills my heart with joy. I love, love, love him!
I am so thankful for our new house out in the country, we bought it just in time when our first grandchild arrived. I am having so much fun exploring the property with Ridley and showing him things and teaching him things out in nature. Yesterday we decided to go out back and pick blackberries.
I was so happy to see that there are a few that are already ripe and waiting for Ridley and I to pick them.
We found a patch that had berries just his height. My goodness, he's so cute!
Ridley caught on to picking them very quickly.
He learned to only pick the black ones.
And it's okay to snack on them as you pick them. Yummy!
We have not had much rain at all this summer, so we did not have too many really big juicy berries, but they were still very tasty.
There was not a huge bounty yet, but Ridley found plenty.
His tiny fingers can't hold too many at once, oh, oh, one dropped. Ridley says, "Oh no!"
He's so stink'n cute!
Grandchildren really are the fruits of our labor. I do not take my role as grandmother lightly. I feel that my role is to enhance the wonderful training he's receiving from his parents, especially his mamma. I know there are so many things I can teach him, especially about God.
I am praying that the Lord has his hand upon this little one.
I pray that God will always keep him safe, healthy and happy and that he will always love Jesus. I know God has big plans for this little one!
Ridley says, "All done!" and we head back to the house. Oh what a good time we had and oh how I love this little boy!
