Happy Grandparents Day!!!
Well, Shepherd was named after his great-great-grandfather and Rauly-Marie was named after her great-grandmothers, so...obviousely grandparents are very important to Chad and I!! I am so very proud of my own grandfather...my Papa. When my brother and I were little, he made us stilts, slides out of cardboard boxes and never ever seemed to run out time to play with us. We felt so special when we were with him...he made us believe we were truly worth all his time!! He was optimistic and encouraging, loving and caring - in turn, he raised two very devoted grandchildren who would do anything for him! I know Chad would say the same about his Granny. I have grown to love her as if she were my own granny. She's a true example of Christ...she puts others before herself, she's a gentle-woman, she loves and cares deeply and most importantly, she is a devoted follower of our Lord! I love her so much and am so thankful that my children are blessed with living close to her! Shepherd and Rauly are just as blessed as Chad and I are in the "grandparent department"!! Their grandparents show them the fruits of the spirit...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. It's so fun to see my parents, and Chad's parents in this role...it makes me appreciate them all so much more! SO, here's to the grandparents in our lives and yours - thank you for being such tremendous examples of how to raise children and most importantly, thank you for your Godly examples - we treasure you all!!
