Spending Time with Grandma

Our family has had some unfortunate news lately. Grandma D (The Boss' Mom) is very very sick. We have been spending a lot of time in Modesto visiting with her and being together as a family. Grandma is very special lady. She has had a remarkable story, from the very beginning. A story which I would love to tell with her permission in a later post. But she truly is an ultimate grandma. She loves her grandchildren more than life itself. She kisses and cuddles them. She is especially close with Big Brother. Big Brother loves taking walks with his grandma. He also likes to swing with her on her porch swing in the backyard. A couple weekends ago, The Boss and his sisters were doing their moms yard work and decided to plant some flowers for her. The boys just LOVED helping with the flowers. Since Grandma can't plant them, the boys and her sat on the bench watching. While this has been an extremely emotional time for our family, it has been truly wonderful spending so much time together.

I'm so sorry to hear about Donna. She is such a sweet woman. I love all the pictures of her with her grandchildren. They're precious.

Donna is an amazing woman. Her story is inspirational and uplifting. Take tons of pictures and make sure you record her life story in her words on video. The tapes of my parents are some of my most priceless possessions. Give Donna my love.

(You are so blessed to belong to two great families!)
