I have a friend who commented on FB that as of August 8th, he'd have half the family "married off."

Well.... "married off" is a complicated term. I think it should be just stated: "married." The children are really never "off," they're just away (or near as the case may be) and that's the way it should be. In my younger years of marriage I erroneously thought that parents work really hard to bear, teach, raise and love their children and then they get married and parents' "work" was over. Well, parenting is never over. Just like Heavenly Father... He never leaves us, just allows us to be independent; He chastens, loves, directs, mentors, sorrows, rejoices... nothing changes... The children just start on their own families and we now become grandparents.... You see? GRAND parents!

You gotta love it!

Two Years in the Making

I'm on Night Duty helping with our new little grandson, Owen Kyle's feeding schedule. Little Owen was born just shy of two weeks ago, April 30, 2010. He is the first born child of our Daughter Kendra and husband, Miles Wright. Isn't he adorable? (Actually, he was only 9 months in the making.)

It's THIS BLOG that has taken me two years to get somewhat presentable. In reality it's taken me Waaaaaaay over two hours on one night to arrange background, colors, text, font, etc. etc. I had to barter with Miles a month's worth of "new baby" live-in nanny assistance in exchange for his computer expertise. I'll get it all together soon enough. Maybe if I threaten to go on strike, he'll forge me into a "CBG" - Computer Blog Guru. Either that, or he'll send me home.

Oh well, what else should I be doing while waiting for baby Owen to awaken? ... Sleep??
Good idea.

Hi, this is a test. This is only a test. I don't know what I'm doing. But when do I ever?
