Taking The Good With The Bad

FINALLY! I have had technical trouble getting to my blog today. I didn't want to miss another day of posting.

We have been away for a couple of days with our grandchildren. They are staying a week.

I have such respect for those grandparents that raise their grandchildren. Mine have been here only four days and I'm exhausted! Plus my ears hurt. You read right. My ears hurt.

I don't think there has been more than two minutes of silence since we picked them up! I don't remember their mother (our daughter) talking that much when she was a child. Must be from their father's side! :o)

Last night brought back memories. I was up during the night with my grandson. He was coughing and couldn't sleep. When I gave him medicine, he threw up. I surely don't miss those days!

Of course, I'll probably be a zombie most of the day. I don't do well without my beauty sleep. The sleep doesn't really make me more beautiful but it surely does make me nicer to be around!

Still, I treasure the time with my grandchildren. I see them far less than I desire. I'll take the good with the bad just to be able to spend time with them. Some grandparents are not as blessed as I am. They seldom see their grand kids. I count my blessings.

All of life has good times and bad times. We just have to take each day and live it as best we can. We need to trust that God is in control of all our days, good and bad. I find that very comforting. Do you?

Tired but happy, Glori zzz zzz zzz
