Their success in life is not measured by their careers, possessions or wealth. Their success is measured by their own parenting skills. I always hope I had something do to with that, but I know they were influenced by me, by grandparents, by aunts and uncles and yes, even by their father though he was not in our home. (And was a bit of a rascal to put it mildly.)
They both work hard and they both worry about their old mother. (Secretly they are drawing straws about who will take me when the time comes.) I could never be more proud of these two blessings in my life and the added blessings they have bestowed on me in the form of grandchildren.
|My daughter and son to the right the rest my treasured grandchildren. (By the way I burned my blouse when I got home and saw the grandma on EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND wearing the same one!)|
