A call from my son in Thailand this early morning.
His sharing always so interesting and encouraging.

An email from my granddaughter, Sarah
the aspiring chef who is working in Nantucket
again this summer.

I admire her determination as she continues
to follow a dream.
Maybe she will be abroad this winter to experience some
cuisine in other cultures.

Another granddaughter and her special one
 return from their honeymoon
in Italy this week.

Another image just received of my grandson

I think of all of these special ones and smile as
they are experiencing travels that I use to dream about.
Now, this matriarch just wants to stay in her
cottage by the woods and garden.

These are my  3 older grandchildren I share about
at the moment.

My 2 youngest
oh my  I wonder what they will experience in their lifetime.

All in all
life has been so good.
A lot of ups and downs
but I would not be where I am at this moment
if these had not been a part of
my life journey....

It is fun to live vicariously through their adventures.

Whatever would we do without grandchildren to make us feel young? All the memories--sweet memories that they have given us.

It's surprising where people get to these days. The nice thing is that we can stay in touch so easily.
