Our Crowns

Proverbs 17:6 tells us that grandchildren are the" crown of the aged. " Friday we were able to spend time with 11 of our crowns! I babysat for David's 3 girls for the afternoon, Christy came to visit and brought her five and Amy came over with her two. In the evening we met Chad and Jessica and went with them to look at a house and then had ice cream in the park with their 4 children. At the house the cousins played with our supply of toys and enjoyed our dress up box. The girls helped me serve them all lunch, I wanted a very pregnant Christy to be able to just go home and put the kids down for a nap and get one herself without having to do lunch at home. It was good being with them, my grown daughters and their children, watching them interact with each other, laughing and talking, cousins spending time together. Then later having time with our son, Chad and his family, eating ice cream, watching the kids play, these are my joyful moments.

What a sweet post. You are a blessed woman and a very good grandmother!! My kids sure love their "JulieAlex gma and gpa" We had fun too. Surely we will have the memories of getting lost in Homedale to look at a bug infested home and stopping at an outhouse on the side of a road and the best part-Ice cream at the park and giggles about the night. I will be able to share that with the kids always. You are right about how they are your crowns :) For sure.
