Rays of Sunshine

This morning as I drank my coffee waiting for Grampa Ray to get up, I turned on the TV and was bombarded with doom and gloom. Everything that bad that could happen seemed to be there was. If it hadn't already happened, it was imminent. after about 15 mins, I turned off the TV and decided to look at my email...lo and behold I had a box full of emails almost 100. As I opened them one after the other to view ways to get rich, beat the government, funny ways to view the sad state the world was in. There just didn't seem that there was anything worth spending my time on and was just at the point of closing my email, when my eyes went down a few emails and there was the intriguing title "BLOG TIME". Seeing the name, I was delighted, because I knew it would contain pictures and comments about one of my 21 great grand children. When I opened the link, there was the fantastic photo of my grandson his wife and the most adorable baby full of smiles. What a change of the day's outlook. By the time I finished viewing the photos and reading all the little notes, absorbing the details. It became a wonderful world, with fantastic people and real world filled with love. What a terrific surprise.

I've never done a blog before, but I thought, why not give it a try....why not let you, Bianica, know just what it meant to get your emails. And best of all, why not start a blog and share the rays of blessing I get from my 18 grandchildren and Spouses of those married, and the beautiful smiles that fill my world through them and their babies that they take the time to share with me and grampa. Thank you for being so special.

I plan to put family pictures and stories on this blog as fast as time will allow with all that's going on. Maybe, be I can get some of them to blog and share so we all can enjoy each other more. It sure would be nice since they are all scattered across the country. California, Washington, New Mexico, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida.

See ya all here in the near future.

  2. Gramma Pat, what a wonderful blog post. I almost cried! :,) I didn't read it the first time cause I was in a hurry. Thank you so much. I'm really glad that you started a blog. I know you'll probably figure it all out. From what I hear you are really good with this kind of stuff, but if you do need help let me know. I look forward to keeping up with your blog!
