This Thursday I am thankful for Grandsons. Tom and I have two. Spencer D. and Luke. They both have added much amusement, tender moments, and lots of love. The photo to the right reminds me of a moment with Spencer when he would not, for the life of him, leave a lamp alone in our living room. Tom ended up being stern with him and he cried. I hated to see Spencer cry. It just broke my heart. He had one of those pitiful cries. He has grown into a great kid. He loves to talk and he always has an invention or two he wants to share. He is very gifted musically and artistically. I love to watch him in the plays he participates in. The first one was at church, and Grandma thought he was the best actor on the stage ! And of course we only want the best for him.
Luke is 3.......need I say more. He always has a twinkle in his eye. You can see the wheels of mischief spinning round and round. He is too smart for his own good. Like all young children, he wants to be with the big kids doing exactly what they are doing. He is all boy. He likes the outdoors, teasing and getting into something he knows he needs to leave alone. His two sisters (Cassidy and Lauren) teach him some silly and hilarious things. He loves his Papa! He has always been a Papa's boy. He is at the age where things he says and does is absolutely funny. You shake your head wondering what on earth he will do next. I cant wait to watch him grow. I wish sometimes they could stay little, but then we would miss out on them growing and maturing.
It is fun to watch both the boys spend time with Grandpa. A special time that they will be able to treasure for a lifetime. So many times we gloss over the bits and pieces of our life and concentrate on the daily routine things in our lives. We need to take time for the special people in our lives and let them know just how important they are. No matter what is happening in your world, take time to look at your life and give thanks to the Lord for all He has provided and given you. Your blessing will enrich your life.
