A Year Since My Last Blog??? Yikes!

I could come up with a million excuses on my absence, but really, I have none. I feel bad about leaving all of my readers (mom) hanging for so long.

So much has happened in the past year but to write about all of that would be overwhelming for me and all of my readers (mom).

So, let me start with the best thing that happened to me this year. I have another grandchild! Andrew Blackburn was born on January 15th of this year. As with the birth of Ava, I immediately fell in love. There is nothing that fills my heart with pride more than watching my son, Ryan being a devoted, loving husband and father.

I’m sure as grandparents, we still see our children as children. Sometimes it boggles my mind to realize that he now has his own family and that his wife and children are the center of his world. The loss of the old relationship broke my heart. On his wedding day, I knew that I was no longer the woman in his life but instead from that day forward, Erin would be the woman in his life. As I said at his wedding; I could not have hand picked a more perfect woman for my son. Ten years later, I can still say the same.

One thing that I am most proud of is that I raised a caring, gentle, loving son. He is my gift to Erin and to his children.

Ok, enough mushy stuff. Here are the pictures of my new grandson, Andrew and a few of my favorite girl, Ava.
