When your kids are all grown up, your role as a parent takes a back seat. You still are one, and always will be. But truth be told, they have their own lives. They don't need your advice, their schedules are busy, you are no longer the center of their world.
Thank God they have children.
They love their Mimi, and their Mimi loves them.
They spend time at the studio with me, amusing themselves while I work. I got the Cranbrook threaded and an order sent out.
Then we took Roy for a walk.
Or should I say a run????
See Roy down in the corner??
Roy loves everybody, but he gets really excited when there are kids around.
They make me smile.
Have I told you that Roy does not like the water???
This is as close as he will get, and he is looking nervous about it.
Not so with these two..... water is like a magnet to them.
Your comments brought tears to my eyes. I can not tell you how much it means to me that you think I make a difference.
HH does wear me down, and there are days when it makes me question EVERYTHING. It makes me feel vulnerable, and emotional.
But I really don't want to stop blogging. I love talking to you, I love hearing from you. I keep telling myself that 'pain is inevitable, suffering is optional'.
And I try not to get into the 'suffering' mode. There is always so very much to be thankful for.
I guess I just get discouraged at times, and to be honest, maybe feel a little sorry for myself, although I detest that.
Kids have a way of keeping me on track. They see joy everywhere, and their energy is inspiring.
HH be damned.
