A Rich Life

Just thinking about my life a little this morning. I live alone, my only son is miles across the ocean, but-or-and I have a very rich life that I am so thankful for. The world is such an interesting place, full of interesting people. For me, our little Sunday fellowship meetings and the others who are also drawn there make my life very rich. We have quite a group of college guys here in Ames, and each one is so strong, sweet and fun to be around. Here’s Justin playing with the kids.

I don’t have a daughter, but I love being around other mothers and daughters and sharing in some good old fashioned girl stuff!

The dads are fun to talk with too, and I often feel like they are my own sons or little brothers!

And although there are no grandkids on the horizon for me, I have lots of wonderful “adopted” grandkids to love and cuddle and kiss!
