THINGS NEAR AND DEAR TO US ALL

Grandchildren are a very special gift from God given to us through our children. Whether we are blessed with one or several, each is a true blessing indeed. I have been blessed with four wonderful grandchildren, 3 boys and 1 girl. My oldest grandson is 18 and will be graduating from high school at the end of this month. Where has the time gone????? It just seems like yesterday I held him in my arms shortly after my daughter gave birth. He looked at me and made a sound that "very" much sounded like "granny", and I have been granny ever since. I had a special song I would sing to him while I rocked him in my arms to make him drowsy, "Kentucky Babe". He would look at me and long before I came to the chorus of the song, his little eyes would become heavy with sleep and it wouldn't be long before he was sound asleep....."Sleep Kentucky Babe".
Now, he is a young man getting ready to step out into the world as he continues his higher education. He is quite dear to me and I am very proud of him and all he has accomplished to date. He is part of our future and I know it's a good, positive part.
