Rainy Days

It is pouring down right now. Fay is being generous in her gift of water to the south. It is all good, time to reflect and be lazy! Like I need an excuse to be that! Next weekend there will be no rest as I plan an adventure up to see my babies and their sweet mom. They will be leaving soon for a trip to France that will last a long time. It is a great adventure for them and I am happy that they all get this chance, not all of us do. It just seems that I have not really had the opportunity to get to know Josh, Sophia and Emily as well as I would have liked. I am pretty sure that Josh will remember me and even Sophia but Emily will not have a clue who I am. Now, who's fault is this I ask? Mine! Just never did take the time to go and see them when I could have. Not enough that is for sure. Now I feel like whining about them leaving me and I know it is not fair. It is unfortunate that most of us just do not take the time to be with our families. I could have gone to see them more and I plan to see them as much as I can before they leave. I just want them to know that they have a family here, a grandmother that loves them, uncles that care about them and would like to know them better. Sometimes I get a little envious of their other grands. It seems that geography is on their side!!! Mostly I am just glad that Josh, Emily and Sophia are blessed with many people who really care about them. So on this rainy night while I am missing them I know that they are safe, and snug, loved and cared for which is a great gift. So good night sweet babies, I love you dearly!

That made me all teary Mom! They know they are loved very much by you. We are very excited about you coming up here next week. Sophia asked today if Abby was coming to play. Emily will always have the special bond with you since you were there at her birth. There will be many opportunities to get to know her.. you will be coming to visit us in France, right? :) It is only three years.. it will fly by! I love you so much. I hope you are getting some great sleep on this rainy night in Georgia. Lots and lots of hugs and kisses.
