Special time on the porch with Lil

Today was the day for the oldest to have special "mommy time" with her mom. My daughter tries to do that once a week with each of her two oldest daughters while the younger ones rest. I enjoyed some special time with the second oldest. We went first to JoAnn's, where she picked out the fabric for cushions for the iron chairs that we bought for $4.99 at a thrift store. "I like that fabric. Good job, Lil!" Then we went to the back porch and sat in the rockers and drank strawberry/banana/blueberry smoothies. Twice while we were sitting there, she said "we have such a beautiful garden." That's why I like to have grandkids. They make me feel so happy. There's nothing better than a lazy afternoon on the porch and the blessed enjoyment of a precious little girl.

Your garden is bee-you-tee-ful! My husband and I are working on getting our backyard and deck in good shape and it's very rewarding. I keep reminding him that our new little grandson will need a nice place to spend time with us. And it will be nice to sit back there with our grown children and visit while we watch the little one run around.
