In memory of my beloved beautiful brother Sonny It is simply one of God's greatest gifts from Heaven and they come in the form of Grandchildren......honestly I never ever ever ever knew love like I do have for my boys xoxoxoxo....Of course I think back to my children and when they were babies which now seems like a million years ago.....Time does fly when you love someone so much......I never ever thought I could experience any greater love then the love of our children.....Hope Grace....Thomas Peter and Caitlin Ann Mae.......and even though they are adults 34.....29....25.......they are forever and ever our babies......Never realized that love of course till you have your own children....At my age of 54 my dad God bless his soul and heart worries about me like I am 5.....Now after all these years we learn that lesson of how much our heart grows each day and while they are adults in our eyes .......souls and hearts they remain those little babies...Then when one of your babies has a baby well that is truly the icing and tons of whip creme and the cake all in one. Me and hubby were talking and we always agree as our children grow we grow more in love with them each and every moment. Now for our precious boys as most of you know Hope and Allen are a 2 income family here in New York it is the norm. However both of them are blessed that Grandma and Grandpa hello here we are......are able to care for them each day...Otherwise daycare costs a small fortune and it is like you are working another job just for daycare. Fortunately for Hope she is a speech therapist for children with special needs so she works private and can choose her own hours and days..So while she works between 27-30 hours a week it still affords her time with her son's....Allen has it harder but rather have a job then no job at all. He did work for a alarm system company for a long time. However there was no future no investment and hence no medical coverage. So 2 years now he entered into working for the city AKA New York City Department of Highways......He started off day time but because even at 2 years he is new so he now work's nighttime.....At first we were like okay Hope and the babies sleep here every night...which we do about 2 times a week...but it is harder really because the boys need so much stuff and bringing all their stuff back and forth. Well all always works out..Right now we as a family are on cloud 1000.......being a grandparent is a true gift from God.....So anyone else here want to share their experience please feel free....Hugs and as I tell Julian all the time it is very important to tell the people you love I love you as many times as you can during the day......xoxoxoxoxox.......Peace to all......
