It’s been...well too long since I’ve seen my grandma and my Uncle Larry, as in they’ve never met Christian, too long. So we made the decision to do a quick road trip down to California to visit. And it was good we did. Ruby got part of her middle name from my grandma (Gladys) and the other middle name from Josh’s grandmother whose middle name is Louise : Ruby Gladys Louise! My grandma is a natural redhead and I think it was fun for her to see that gene passed down to one of her great grandchildren. Fun trivia note about my uncle, he wrote a song about me when I was a baby! 😂 Also, I learned that my papa had a job at one of the local sawmills in my current town! I didn’t know that before! It’s been a quick 24 hr trip, but one I don’t think we’ll regret. Making time for family is always a good idea. For the rest of my N. Cali family, we’ll come back down for another visit! I missed you all!🤗🚗

If you want kids to love going to the library when they get older, you must read to them everyday and encourage them to read everyday when they are young! SillyYaya.com ®️”Raising readers, one book at a time”-Violet Favero
Do you know what you are working for? No seriously... WHAT are YOU working for? Everyone has bills to pay 🤷🏼♀️ I have always worked “hard” but having grandkids now and our kids becoming self sufficient adults and THAT is just kind of awesome to watch them grow into their own person... if you are a parent of older children or adult children or grandparent you get what I’m saying. It’s beautiful to watch them on their own journey in life. 💕 But I have never wanted to have the financial freedom more in my life than I do NOW so we can go travel to see all of our family spread all over in Oregon, Orlando, Virginia Beach, Mexico and around the corner... we love our family more than any other thing in life and if I have to work my butt off .... know that THEY are what drives me!! I love you Gabbi, Chloe, Lexi, Jake, Helena, Izzy and Levi with my entire heart and soul💕 #family#workhard#love#life#kids#grandkids
We'll be supporting @macmillancancer World's Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September! Why not host your own and get the grandkids to help out with the baking? There are loads of great recipes on their website.
This COULD have been the last photo ever taken of my 2.5yo grandson. But it isn’t!!! You never know when life can change in a breath.
Monday Thatcher was with family and friends at a community pool and had a near drowning accident. Praise God he is unharmed. Miraculously! But I assure you our family is shaken by the “what if’s.” My daughter and people who witnessed his lifeless body being pulled from the water and then resuscitated by CPR are still reeling.
This week has been a lot of processing. So grateful I don’t have to figure out how I could live without him. Even though he is doing amazing, our family is still processing through trauma and grief. We are pressing on, praising!
I share here, not looking for sympathy and “I’m sorry”, but instead just to know I’m a little different. Still the same, but just a little more aware of what doesn’t matter.
Also a lot more aware of what does. #grandkids#thatchergrey#love#family#grief#gratitude
