What a Blessing!

For starters, I have a free night! I don't have to do anything until I go to work at 10:00 p.m. The boy's are all gone to their wrestling practice at the U of M. A.J. is watching the new Netflex movies we received in the mail today. I thought I would sit down and journal for a while. This week has been a little slow for me. I asked if I could have Josh and Ethan Tuesday and this morning before I had to leave for work. I picked the boy's up at 7:30 a.m. and brought them back to my house. I fed them breakfast and then took Bo and Josh to school at 9:00 a.m. I then got to enjoy Ethan the rest of the morning. I kept him until 12:30 p.m.

That little boy just blesses his Nana's heart. I get to hear how beautiful I am and how much he loves me all morning. What Grandma wouldn't love to hear that? He brings life to this house when the boy's are in school. I am very grateful for my daughter-in-law for letting me get him whenever I want him.

I will be busy this weekend! Tomorrow morning I work at my house cleaning job. I will do my route when I'm done at my house cleaning job at 12:30 p.m. I think the twins best friends are spending the night Friday evening. Jon called me when I was on my route and asked if they could, he said it was o.k. with dad. Tomorrow evening I also have to take the boy's to the High school to be weighed for there last winter wrestling tournament on Sunday. That doesn't take very long and shouldn't get in the way of there playing to much. Saturday Bo has soccer practice in the a.m. and Awana Olympics at 1:00 p.m. in Jackson. It will be off to my Janitors job when it is over. Sunday after my route I will be heading to Carleton for the last wrestling tournament this winter. I think we get a month off before summer wrestling begins. That covers my life for the next few days. I'm not sure if I'll have time for to much journaling until Monday.

I'd better start making dinner before the troops come home from wrestling. I'm making spaghetti with garlic bread for the boy's. My husband and I are eating Barbeque Vegetable protein sandwiches, my husband made this up before he left to take the boy's. My boy's are always very hungry when they are finished practicing

I wasn't going to post this email from my Step-dad but it really blessed my heart to see how much he loves my mom. I thought maybe you'll would be blessed with it as well.

Hello Lori,

Yes, those pictures cracked me up !!!!!!!

We had to go to the U yesterday and I had a Heart Monitor on me yesterday from 11:00 AM to 11: AM Today. Then I took it off and they gave me an envelope to send it back to the U so they can check my Heart Beat to see if it is keeping the right beat.
Now I am to have lung surgery May 2, but before that I have to go back to Dr.Sisson the lung doctor. Who knows what will happen from there except the Lord.

I am some what better than I was the last time I saw him.
Since I have retired I have a whole different look on life. Now I see how important each new day is. I have realized how important family is. And to stop and look at every thing God as made for us to enjoy. Before the Devil destroys it all.

Some time I will just sit down and rest and look at all the beauty God as made. And listen to the birds. When I was working it was hurry, hurry all the time from 4:00 AM to late at night.

God watched over me that whole time. I know one thing when you reach my age you know time is getting short. I have a hard time dealing with that.

I could not have a better wife, she as been there for me my whole life. And when I
Was working she waited for me for many hours to get home from work. She has always loved me and took care of me and all of you children. I guess I got winded.

As far as my B-Day there is a place called Rallys we like to eat at on the way to the Lake Sometimes. I just love that place. They don't have gift cards. So just give me what ever, you always over due it any way.

Well I better go for now,

Love, Dad

This should be the last busy weekend for a while. It just seems like a lot got put into this weekend. I guess when you have a lot of children, you are just going to be busy. Someday I'll be crying that I don't have enough to do. Until that day I'll just take one day at a time and do the best I can.

Thanks also for your visit

Your step-dad sends you very nice e-mails. I know you cherish them. Isn't technology wonderful!

What a wonderful Grandma you are! I just love it. How your always willing to spend as much time as you can with those little ones. I think it touches me so much, because we don't have involved grand parents for our children (although God has wonderfully provided many 'adopted' ones for us !!) So when I see people like you making so much time for them - it warms my heart!
Thanks Lori.
Blessings ~

You are lucky to be able to have Ethan over. I live so far away from my grandkids that this is not an option for me but I wish it was.

There are so many busy people out here in blogland and you are one of them. I can't believe how busy everyone is. It hasn't been to bad for me, but I do have a lot of things to catch up on.
