Carissa (from one of my favorite Low Country cities) over at lowercase letters hosts Miscellany Monday ... and I'm going to join in today (nothing like a meme to make a legitimate blog post out of my random babbling).
1. I'm dreaming of a white beach
2. Baby, it's cold outside
3. O Come O Come Emmanuel
I love the Christmas season ... even though we don't celebrate Advent at our church, the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is one of excited anticipation. We look forward to the family get-togethers, to giving gifts, to all the wonderful traditions of Christmas ... and we look forward to the day when we remember that Jesus came to earth. God's really been working on my heart this Christmas season ... He's been teaching me to look forward to Jesus' return with as much excitement and anticipation as I do for the remembrance of His first coming.
I've got to get up away from the computer if I'm going to do anything productive today. But I'm going to leave you with some thoughts that are near and dear to my heart:
If I had known how wonderful it would be to have grandchildren, I'd have had them first. ~Lois Wyse
If becoming a grandmother was only a matter of choice, I should advise every one of you straight away to become one. There is no fun for old people like it! ~Hannah Whithall Smith
It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother - that's why the world calls her grandmother. ~Author Unknown
Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H. Waldrip
If your baby is 'beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time,' you're the grandma. ~Teresa Bloomingdale
Grandparents are similar to a piece of string - handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of their grandchildren. ~Author Unknown
Yes, the best years of my life have been my "Nana years". ;-)
