Appreciation

IMG_3534Good Morning!

Remember these two cuties I shared back in January who weighed in at 4 Lbs 6 oz and 4 lbs 13 oz? Well, my have they grown. I call them my “Georgia Peaches” as they live in Georgia. I have always tried to make it a rule that my children should not have my grandchildren out of state. However, my daughter doesn’t seem to care for that rule. I understand. Her family is established in careers and friends and life. But it doesn’t mean I don’t miss them being closer. My grandchildren are my prides and joys and I miss these two so much! I was thinking the other day though, that while I’ve spent a fair amount of time whining that I can’t see them as often as I want, that when I do see them it is solid quality time. I’m learning to appreciate the time I do have with them. While I see my local grandchildren a couple of times a week, when I get to spend time with these two, well it is long term quality time. And because of the beauty of Facetime I still get to “see” them weekly. So the word for the day is appreciation. We may not always get things exactly the way we want, but learning to appreciate things the way we have them can be a lot  more relaxing. It doesn’t mean I don’t miss them, but I sure do appreciate every minute I get to be with them. How about you? Anything in your life that you may have forgot to be appreciating?

Peace,

Julie

  1. First, I’d like to say “Go Blue”.

    Second, appreciation for the time we are given should be something that we think about daily (which is something that I don’t always remember to do). Thanks for the reminder.
