  1. Thank you so much! What a blessing! I really needed this lift today! Thank you also for the comments on today’s post. I knew I would love being “Granny.” I didn’t know about all the wonderful and new feelings that come with it. It is distinctly different from being a parent, and it is very liberating in its own way.

    Blessings on you, and thanks again! I accept with thanksgiving. I look forward to passing it on. . .


    • So very happy that this gift of an award could give you a lift. I yearn to be a “granny” too some day–by God’s grace. I know it must be an amazing feeling.
