A lot of driving for one day (1100 miles round trip), but worth it to be at my oldest grandson's 8th birthday party, held at his great grandmother's home. Also got to see his rocket football team beat a much bigger Berrien Springs team. He and I are very tight so lots of hugs, kisses, and sadness at leaving. Still hope to have him here full time some day. My son Eric drove over from Metro Detroit (Farmington), which was also a great treat. Will see him here 11/13 for deer hunting.
Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends — and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode
