He's going to make a big splash one day!

Waiting in line for pool to open.     Enjoying the pool.
Sorrow hangs heavy on my heart today, and my eyes brim with tears. I fear for my great-grandson's safety and future, because this world is in such chaos. My prayers are with the victims, survivors, the families of the Orlando massacre, and also all those across the globe who are suffering in so many ways.

Please keep my writer friend, Claudia Mundell, in your thoughts and prayers as she battles cancer.

I feel blessed with this little boy in our lives. I absolutely know Liam will make a difference in this world. He has a depth of understanding, love, humor, communication, and compassion that is way beyond his years. He sings complete songs and has a great repertoire.

I took him swimming yesterday at the pool. He kept saying, "Fun, Nana."

When he awoke from his nap, he sat on his potty chair and was successful.  I jumped up and down and cheered. He burst out laughing and said, "Oh Nana, you so fuuuunnnnyyy!"

I am thinking about writing a children's book titled the Old One and the Young One. Liam and I so enjoy each other's company.

I would read that book!

Oh, he is so sweet I want to lean into this photo and give him a big huggy! ("Who is this strange woman hugging me?")

Our world is in trouble... I sometimes want to take my kids back to the 1800's and live in peace with the Ingall's family on the prairie. But, they had troubles then too. Our hope comes from the Lord, only...even then...even now, tomorrow too. But He comes through. Praying for Orlando...for all of us.

God bless.

Hi, Linda, you told our friend Becky (in a comment) to drop by and see what you had to offer, so I decided to do just that.

Liam is a cutie. What a blessing that you are able to spend time with him. My grandparents were such an important part of my life, and until I was 15, I lived within walking distance of both sets.

My daughter just got married last October, and children aren't on their radar for another couple years. I do look forward to being a grandma, though.

I know people can fear bringing a child in to this world, but if the good people stop having babies, we will give this world to the bad and cruel. We need Liams!!

Have a great day,
Patti @ Embracing Home

Your little tadpole is a darling doll baby. He is so smart and adorable. Yes, Linda. Write that book! Susan p.s. Thanks for all your sweet visits. Love them.

May the souls of the innocent victims rest in peace! May your friend Becky have a swift recovery from her illness!

As for your adorable Liam, I'm afraid that he and his generation won't be able to save the world. It's too late. I can explain that but it will take time and space.
Anyway, Liam and his generation are sadly going to pay for the incompetence and the politically correctedness of the present generations.
Sorry about the pessimism, but that's what I believe. I hope I'm all wrong.

Ooh! Little Liam is so dang cute! Look at his little shoes! The only way he could be cuter is if he was holding my new puppy, Jack.

Excuse me. I was just having a cute overload. Now, as for that children's book idea...I think it would be great. You are just the ONE to write it!

That's a book I'd buy, even though it would be in advance of grandchildren (yes, I continue to be green with envy...sigh!) And what a delight those photos are to see. With all the nastiness going on in the world, your little guy is a slice of sunshine, even from afar.

Connie said...

Liam is such a sweet little guy. It sounds like he brings you much joy. The book idea sounds great.

Liam is such a cutie. I think you're right, he will be a big hit some day, and thanks to his grandma for love and encouragement.

I know what you are saying, this is a troubled world we are leaving the future generation all we can do is make our backyard secure and happy for them if everyone showed concern to their neighbours the world would slowly become a happier and safer place.

Our world has become such a terrifying place. Children are our best hope for the future.
