Joyous Friday Feature

Feature FridayLast week, my husband and I finally met our newest grandchildren.  While we love all the others just as much, holding the new ones was very special.  My Friday Feature today is a celebration of our meeting.  To commemorate that meeting, I wrote a poem describing my sentiments in holding the infants for the first time and of spending time with three of our other grandchildren.

Holding Joy

Holding joy
Embracing sweetness
Grandchild in my arms
The height of contentment

Chasing smiles
Frolicking with laughter
Grandchild running around
The ultimate in enjoyment

Finding love
Cherishing memories
Grandchild in my life
The epitome of endearment

Friday Feature ~ Addition

Feature FridayAddition is not always a good thing.  Adding problems can make the ones we already have seem unbearable.  Heaping insult to injury, by further wounding an already suffering heart, is very hurtful.  In many instances, addition can make our lives worse.

On the other hand, addition can be great.  An unanticipated bonus, adding much-needed funds to a fledgling salary is always nice.  Gaining new friends is a special blessing.  Additions like these are wonderful.

Today’s post features one of those special kinds.  This past week, our family grew with the addition of two precious grandchildren.  They make for a total of eight.  My post today is short, but very sweet.  Written by a proud grandmother, bragging on the special treasures of grandchildren, today’s Friday Feature highlights:

Greysen and Quinn
Our newest additions

They were born within 24 hours of each other, but are from different families.  Their parents live near to each other in Colorado, so I am sure that these two cousins will grow up being close.  My husband and I will meet them next month, when we fly out for our first meet and cuddle.  Hopefully, lots of cuddling!

Greysen makes our 7th grandson

Greysen had some difficulties at first, but is now improving.  I would appreciate your prayers that he would continue to get better and go home from the hospital soon.

Quinn is doing great, but her mom continues to have some problems.  Pray that they will both head home soon, too.

I would like to thank all my blogging friends for allowing me a bragging day.  If you are already a grandparent, you will understand this need!

Blessings on your Friday,
