Mom and Grandma!

As I wrote when I first started this blog it is not easy being a parent. After the joy of having my little grandbaby, I had to watch my good friend say good bye to her beautiful daughter after complications from a surgery. Then a couple days after they left, our daughter ended up in the hospital with an infection and had to be on IV for 4 days with 3 different antibiotics. I was having a hard time, knowing what my role was suppose to be. I wanted to be with my baby girl at the hospital, all the time, but she has a husband to be there with her, and I was needed as a Nana most the time here at home.

We got through that, and Colton is doing well, he is growing like a weed. Here is a picture of him from last night. He will be 3 weeks old already Friday. Wow, where does the time go?

Cassie is doing better, she has a nasty virus right now, can't hardly talk but doing much better than she was.
My son, Cory is going to come home for a late Christmas, the 1st of February so looking forward to seeing him and his wife Charly. It will be the first time we have seen them since last August for me, and last April for Jim.
My son, Curtis, could use some prayer about a relationship he is just starting. I just ask you to pray for God's will to be in this relationship. He made me proud with something he told me today. Then I wanted to turn around and tell him what he should do, but I didn't. He is an adult and I just need to trust God to finish raising him, but did I ever tell you that this part of parenting is the hardest.
I love being a mom though, I would never want to change the fact that I am a mom, because I love my children with all my heart, I just wish I could still tell them not to do that or this, because it might hurt them down the road. The best part of being a mom now though is being a NANA, I love being NANA it is so much fun.

Climb that "thang!"
