My oldest son announced recently that he thinks he and his wife will finish PhDs about this time next year. That is a very, very, very good thing. They have worked hard for a number of years, getting by with little, in order to reach this goal. I think that will have taught them to appreciate the milk and honey when they finally get to the land of which it is made. That is a good thing, too.
If you are a regular reader, then you know that Mama and I became grandparents in 2013. Now I don’t want to give you the impression that all of the other good things that happened in 2013 paled by comparison, but I gotta tell you that having a grandson is a very, very, good, cool thing. Not really sure how to add to that description, so let’s just leave it at that.
So, for all of the bad stuff that happened in 2013, and regardless of my disdain for having to write it, the old girl wasn’t such a bad year after all.
Here’s to a great 2014! May she be filled with even better things than her younger sister.
