Tuesday Time to Tackle: Day with the Granddaughter!

Today I got to spend much of the day with my happy granddaughter.  We hung out together while her mom had a doctor's appointment, then spent some time grocery shopping.  She's such an easy-going girl and rarely fusses. 
 
I failed to take my camera (bad Grandma!), so you'll just have to take my word that we had a great time.  I read  Brown Bear, Brown Bear to my granddaughter, and I was delighted that she sat through two readings of it, and seemed to enjoy the story.  

My blog posts don't occur as frequently and regularly as in the past, and I'm still trying to figure out if I want to make a schedule change.  I will continue each weekend to participate in the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop--please join me!--but will take some days off sometime during each week.  If I ever decide on a fixed plan, I will let you know.  :-)

  2. Bad Grandma! NO pictures?!! Please think of this next time you have her over.... Although quality-time with a little girl is always more important than making pictures of her...

    Having the same problem with the blogging routine. Hard to get a regular time to blog when you're busy with other things, isn't it?! Well, even if you just blog once a week, that's just fine. Life is more important. Blogging is just a happy extra. Thank you for visiting my blog though. You are my only faithfull reader left I think.... Lost the rest during all those silent days/weeks. Ah well, there are worse things.... Have great week!

  3. Sounds like a lovely time with your granddaughter.
    I haven't posted much myself lately. Life is just too busy sometimes.

  6. I can't help but reprimand you for the lack of photos but I look forward to seeing them soon! Please? Your day with your granddaughter sounds like the perfect day to me and one I have enjoyed often with Amara -- and 9 years later those days are even better! You have so much fun in your future!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Ten Things of Thankful: It's Only January, but I'm Taking a Break

A new year often brings re-commitment, re-direction, and renewal of enthusiasm. A blank calendar shows possibilities: routines to be developed, and breaks to schedule in. While I know it's only January--the traditional "routines to be developed" phase--I'm shaking things up and starting with a break. I will be away from my blog and generally off-line for the next few weeks, but never fear, the Ten Things of Thankful link-up will go on. I will respond to comments and read linked posts when I return from my break. 

This week, I'm thankful for:

1. Book club. When I was a child, I had no problem at all living with my nose constantly stuck in a book. As an adult, I am trying to remember that it is OK to spend hours reading. Book club is a step in the right direction. I "have to" read, but I'm having fun, and have given myself permission to read other books, too. 

2. Thrift stores. I wanted an actual, physical copy of The Help (the book club selection for Fe…
