Granny Goose Arrives Today...


I am blessed to be an almost forty year old mother of four and still have my Grandma around. She is 87 years old and lives about two hours away. She takes the train up to visit our family when the weather isn't too warm and when she can squeeze it in between her exercise classes and day trips to play the slot machines. She is coming today. I am really looking forward to spending time with her. The kids are going to be home quite a bit this week and she will even get to see her oldest great-granddaughter sing in her high school choir event on Thursday. Her family is truly her life, she will love it.

My grandma is a really funny character. She is pretty much deaf but still insists that she can hear everything you say. Our visit is one never-ending game of 'telephone'. Do you remember that game as a kid? It was my favorite...you would sit in a circle and whisper something in your neighbors ear and then whisper what you heard to the person on the other side of you. By the time it got to the last person they would have to blurt out what was said, which was ALWAYS wrong but always so funny. Talking with her is alot like that. Once when my husband Paul was eating his favorite chocolate treat, he offered, "Mary, would you like a Ho-Ho "? With a shocked look, she quickly replied, "Now Paul, why would I want a Homo?"

Pray for us, it's going to be an interesting couple of days...

I laughed until I cried sitting right here all by myself! Thank you for that!
