Zoo – The Last Gathering A to Z Challenge

A memorable time for me and three of my grandchildren before I moved to another state was going to the zoo’s light show.

Every year the Zoo is decorated with millions of beautiful lights and hosts various festivities to celebrate the holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I decided to take my grandchildren for an enjoyable time. It was our first time at this event. In spite of the cold we had a wonderful time. No one complained. It was a surreal time. When I think about that day I can still feel the peace and calm that we experienced on our adventure.

We made our way through the zoo enjoying the light show and the animals. I also took pictures to remember the outing but they didn’t come out well because it was night. In spite of the pictures not turning out I have a picture in my heart that will last a lifetime.

Do you have any memorable times hidden in your heart?

Grandsons are the Greatest

Grandsons are precious gems when your world is dominated by females. I have four granddaughters and two great granddaughters. Today I’m going to focus on my grandsons.

When my daughter was pregnant I had a talk with God about only wanting grandsons because there were too many girls in my family. I believe God listened—but at that point He didn’t respond. When my daughter was in labor He reminded me of my request. I knew at that moment I was getting a grandson. Later that evening we welcomed a little bundle of joy into our family and sure enough a boy arrived.

My next grandchild was a boy. I reminded God of my request but didn’t get any indication that another boy was forthcoming. A boy was born—another exciting event in my family.

I have not met my youngest grandson. I’ve only seen him on Skype and in pictures. I live in another part of the country from him. I will get to meet him next month because I’m going to my oldest grandson’s graduation from high school.
