The Surprise!

"Come in, come in!"

"We've already started the party! - Who is it anyway??"
Abbie hollered from the lighted front porch. She was unable to see who that "guest" was that was walking toward them in the dark. As the mysterious person stepped into the light.....the surprise on their faces were evident....Grandma!!!!What are you doing here??? How did you get here!!! We thought you were in California!!! What a great surprise!
We stepped into the house where my daughter Shannon is on the phone, "I've got to go now, Mom is here.....MOM IS HERE!!? MOM!!! What are you doing here??!!!"
This was the scene that played out yet again as Lani arrived with her kids and my Mom and Dad. It was so much fun for me to be the surprise at the party. Soaking up hugs and kisses from the little ones. We were celebrating Micah's 9th birthday and Charis' 7th birthday. Hard to believe these grandkids are growing up so. My daily prayer for each of them is that they grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They are such a blessing!

Love to all!
