Granddaughters, The Crown of Grandparents
~~~We gathered together for a meal at the table the way " real families do", said our # 1 Granddaughter. A meal around the table means a lot to her, and this last year and a half of tears and grief beyond anything Hubby and I could ever have imagined we could live through, not to mention our oldest son who has lost EVERYTHING except his daughters and the love and support of praying family and friends, well, a meal around the table as a family is priceless !
~~~# 4 Granddaughter is helping bake the bread for dinner with us, her great grandparents , and her Great Aunt. She likes baking bread !~~~
~~~ The table is set, the candle is lit. We have home made bread, chicken and rice, and coleslaw made from carrots from our garden and cabbage from Uncle and Auntie's garden. Dinner is ready !~~~~~~We gather together as a family, this is the answer to many , many tearful prayers. This is the answer to the prayers so many have petitioned our Father in Heaven for mercy for 4 little girls and a man who only wanted to serve God, our country, and be a great Dad to his beloved daughters.~~~ ~~~#4 granddaughter was so worn out by all the activity and excitement of the last few days that she slept through dinner. And she helped bake the bread. Oh well, she and I were up late and she had a late snack of the bread she helped bake. Today the family heads to Eastern Washington where they will live on a farm with our youngest son and his wife. They will go to a small rural school, they will have horses to ride and care for, kittens in the barn to check up on, dogs to help feed, sports to engage in and family to uphold them in all things every child SHOULD have !
