Big Surprises

I love big surprises don’t you?  Things that happen when I least expect a wonderful surprise, delight me and often bring tears.  Like this one that happened when our granddaughter (#2) and her husband visited from Chicago last week.  She said, “I have something for you Grandma,” and she handed me an envelope.  Inside was this photo….

Yes bloggy-buddies I am going to be a great-grandmother for the second time and it feels
g-o-o-o-d as we say here in Texas!  Of course the soon-to-be grandmother and grandfather are over the moon!!  Grandson #1 and his wife live in Chicago with our precious little great-granddaughter #1.  Now great-grand??? will be right around the corner so to speak.  I will not get to see either of them as much as I would like, but videos and photos will abound!

I always thought that when I reached grandmother age I would be an old lady who sits in my rocker and knits all day—like between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. after which I must sleep because of my advanced age.  Now that I am going to be great-grandmother of two I have many complaints like the one I voiced to DH today, “Holy Toledo I have been running all day and I have 5 more things to do before I can stop.  Will somebody please tell the world that I am old and I can’t keep up this pace!!” 

It’s all relative friends!  You are what you believe you are and in the absence of extreme health concerns, which I thank God I have none of at this time, you can be all you want to be at any age.  Now THERE is a discovery for you!!  I hope to be on my feet moving right behind three year-old Adelyn and the new little peanut for a long, long time!!  And working, and blogging, and chasing fur-kids, and knitting, and cooking, and shopping (yea shopping!!) and so on and so on. 
All that makes life very, very, very good!!
