He's the little man that we adore!

I never knew that being a grandma would be so special!!

I just love watching that little guy grow and change and develop his own little personality.

I miss him so much and wish that I could see him more often.
But I have the best son and daughter-in-law that send me pictures all the time of him.

And we do video chat online so I can talk to him too. Technology is amazing.
Its not as good as being there in person but it is the next best thing.

I love to hear each new word that he is learning and watch him play with his cars and Buzz Lightyear. I love hearing the stories of everything he does and says.
It is the highlight of my week!!

I hope that by seeing us and hearing our voices it will keep us in his memory so he doesnt forget us. I think he knows who we are because his face lights up when he sees us.

I am loving this stage in my life. I look forward to more little special spirits coming into our family in the future so I can spoil them and just give them lots of hugs and kisses!

Being a grandparent is the most awesome role ever!!!!
Joe and I LOVE it!!!!!

Today I saw this poem and it expresses just how we feel about our "little buddy". So I thought that I would share it with you and some recent pictures of this special little man that we adore!!!

Grubby little fingers,
Dirty little face;
Racing through life at the speed of light,
There's no one could take his place.

Riding on a stick horse,
With a cowboy hat and a gun;
Accomplishing his mission in life,
To bring mischief, laughter and fun.

There's no one like a grandson,
To bring a grandparent joy;
Snips and snails and puppy dog tails,
All wrapped in a little boy.

A little bit of sunshine,
A blessing from the Lord;
He's got us right where he wants us,
He's the little man we adore.

Is it worth it to continue?

Ok, as you may have noticed (or maybe you havent noticed) I havent been too good at
keeping up with my blog lately.

For one reason is the fact that I feel like my life is pretty boring and that I have nothing of value to share that anyone would be interested in.
(Are you interested in reading about my boring life?)

Secondly, I dont have alot of extra time and it does take time to enter these posts.
(Is it worth your time to read my boring posts?)

Another reason is I feel like so many people, that I know, have also quit doing
their blogs ~ choosing to keep in touch and
share their life on Facebook and Twitter, etc.
(Is Facebook and Twitter enough or is their still a need for blogs?)

So I'm asking for your help as I make a decision as to whether
I should keep doing a blog or not.
#1 - Does anyone out there in the cyber world have any interest in me, my life and my blog?

#2 - Will it be worth my time and yours if I continue this blog?

#3 - And......what kinds of things are interesting to those of you that do still read blogs?

So it would be really helpful if the 2 or 3 of you that follow my blog
will help me make my decision of how to spend my extra time
and if it is worth it in the end to spend it here in the blogosphere.

I look forward to hearing from you!!!
