Granddaughters are Precious

Reminder: Leave a comment on any (or all) posts in June for a chance to win one of my books, 1 copy of A Tailor-Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer, and 2 copies of Gunsmith's Gallantry by Susan Page Davis. See side bar for details.

Moving. Ugh. If I never have to move again before I move into a nursing home or whatever, that will be too soon. I won't bore you with details. I am here! In my own beautiful, beloved home!

Jaran brought all three girls to visit on Friday. Each one reacted in her own unique style.

Savannah (14) bounced from room to room ending in the back bedroom (a converted garage). She announced, "This is my room." (I've love to have her! She's welcome to it. When I finally get the storage boxes unpacked ...)

Jordan (18 months this week) made her presence known next. She zipped through all the boxes and mess and found the one thing that interested her ... a big blue ball I had purchased for her some time ago. I couldn't have found it, but she did. She claimed it as her own and didn't want to give it back upon leaving. I told her she could play with it again the next time she came to visit.

Shannon (almost 11) looked through all the house without making a comment. But she was the only one who said, before they left, "I like the house."

Three precious girls. I look forward to more of their company.

How precious! I loved hearing everyone's reactions to your new home. Leave it to little Jordan to find that ball! So glad your moved in to your new home.

Darlene,

I can't wait! I'm about to be a grandma. In October. And it's a GIRL! I'm so excited. Your story only makes me that much more anxious. Thank the Lord for little girls. (And boys;-))

Oh, Debbie, congrats! Our baby due in September is a boy, great news after those three precious girls. Enjoy! Grandbabies are a wonderful gift.

I love to read this type of book. The problem is that when I start I can't put it down and then I don't have another one to start on. Thanks for the chance to win it. ybutler@oppcatv.com

You sound like me! I always have to have something with me to read. Even if I have ten books waiting back home, I'll buy another one rather than go without a book!

Yes, Darlene, granddaughters are precious! I just spent a week in New York with mine. Let me tell you, for all the walking we did around the city (our son lives there and was able to give us the grand tour) that little eight year old sure was a trooper! I think the thing that fascinated her the most was swiping the Metro card and all the escalators! LOL!

Would love to win a copy of any of the books you are giving away!
