Precious Moments with Parents/Grandparents

I am so thankful for the time I have had to spend with my parents here. It had been almost two months since I had seen them. Staying with them for extended time has been glorious. It has been great for Savannah too. I can remember the weeks I would go to Mississippi to spend with my grandparents.

The first time I got to drive by myself was with my granddad. I was probably 11 and my grandaddy told me to go get the pick-up truck. I stood there shocked, wondering if he was serious and he had to tell me again. I was SO excited. The three wheeler wouldn't start and he wanted me to pull him on it so he could pop the clutch to get it started. That is now one of my favorite memories, driving and seeing my granddaddy in the rear view mirror, just hoping I wouldn't jerk him off his seat.

Savannah is cooking, cleaning and playing with her Mimi. These are precious moments that she will cherish all her life.

This week my dad was telling me some stories about when he was in Korea during the war there...stories I had never heard before.

Treasure those moments with your loved ones.
