I Am Blessed...

My goodness, I was so excited about my grandson visiting yesterday,I forgot to take photos. So this is from last year.  Ted is 34 pounds thinner this year and I am 4 pounds heavier...blast. Grandson Korey is still trim. I wanted to post this, cause I just wanted to brag a little. Korey will be graduating this coming Spring.  He has a degree in meteorology from Ball State University. He will be getting this degree in GIS., from SLC university, Utah.....which I keep forgetting what that stands for ...I do know it has to do with mapping.
 Ted and I were thanking Korey for staying focused on his studies and walking a straight line in life. He has never cause a moments' troubles. He said, "Nana , I have you to thank for that. You instilled good work ethics in your daughters. Showing them that something worth having is worth working to achieve." Oh believe   me, I thank God for that young man . I don't think Korey was buttering me up for a bigger Christmas gift, because they get the same thing each year. LOL  I can hardly stop smiling . :):)


  1. Awww. He sounds like a great young man. So sweet he credits you for that too. Merry Christmas!

  2. oh my! what a great young man!!! i am so happy you have him in your life, stay proud as i know you will!

  6. Susie!!!
    I oh-so-know why our hearts are kindred!

    I love to hear the words "work ethic" out of the mouth of our babes! Such achievement! Congratulations to all!

  7. Oh Susie...what a blessing he is! And I think he is right about you being a good Mom! That really helps to instill great values onto our grandchildren!


  8. Handsome, smart, ambitious and directed.......what a wonderful grandson. To think he gave you all the credit......maybe you should double his present for one year, hah. COngratulations on being his Grammy.

  9. What a handsome intelligent grandson you have Susie. You are truly blessed.

  10. Oh- Susie-That just brought tears to my eyes. It made me think of part of the Bible verse:
    Proverbs 31:28
    Her children arise up, and call her blessed- It has now gone into the second generation for you.
    Those are beautiful young men- I can tell that they love you...and I know how much you love them. I'll bet there was a tear or two mixed in with that smile of yours- xo Diana

  11. The visit did you a world of good, didn't it? He's a fine young man and you have a right to be proud! Holiday hugs!
