Day 6 - Giving Thanks & Making a Card !

I thought I would join in at Kelli's and show a card I recently made. Kelli always has such elaborate paper crafting that she does...I am a beginner compared to her beautiful work, however, I do love to work with paper.
Day 6- 2 of my greatest blessings in this life are my grandbabies. It is amazing to me the love a grandparent feels for a grandchild. It is different than your own children, but so strong of its own.

We have a grandson, age 6 and our granddaughter turning 3 soon. They are my daughter's children. I wish I could see them more often, but when I do I squeeze as much spoil, love, hugs and kisses time on them as possible. It also surprises me the love for us they display. Even if several months pass between seeing them, they run to us with recognition and screams of joy! We should get to see them Thanksgiving and I am planning already!!

Proverbs 17:6 Children's children are the crown of old men; the glory of children are their parents.

So sweet! From the time that I was a little girl I looked forward to having my own kids. Now that they are growing up I look forward to grandkids. We are in no hurry of course - they are 16 and 19. I know it will be great though.

Grandchildren are great! I am in North Dakota for the love of my oldest daughter and oldest granddaughter. I have 3 others, two just added in the last month or so. Thanks for letting us enjoy yours with you!
