I am blessed with a wonderful family. I have 3 adult children and 8 grandkids, ages 3-20. All my kids are doing well and are great parents to my grandkids. Yesterday they gave me a belated 70th birthday party (13 days belated, but that doesn’t matter, it was the only day that worked). It was a wonderful day. My two youngest granddaughters competed for my attention. They love their grandpa, and they know I love them. My youngest granddaughter came outside, tapped me on the leg and asked me to come with her, she lead me into the house. As she and I entered, my kids yelled Dad, you’re supposed to stay outside (they were bringing out a lit birthday cake. I said “Maddie came and got me!” She understood the cake was for me, and wanted me to come inside for it. It isn’t funny to you all who may be reading this, but I laughed for a half an hour. Still smiling now. That is what my grandchildren do, put a smile on my face. I will remember that moment for the rest of my life. My 5 year old grandson came out a bit prematurely before the cake and started singing Happy Birthday to me alone, ahead of everyone else. That too brought a chuckle to this old man. These kids and grandchildren will keep me young. I will remember that day for the rest of my days. Thank you Lord for the blessings!
