“14 Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. 15 They will declare, “The Lord is just! He is my rock! There is no evil in him!”
Psalm 92:14-15 (NLT)
Welcome to Thankful Thursday! Today as I sit pondering my list of things I am thankful for, I find that at the top of that list today is my grandchildren. I have eight beautiful blessings thus far and I couldn't be prouder of them or happier to be their 'Nana.' Sometimes, I can't believe I am a grandmother...I still think of myself as young, well...relatively young. (*smiles*)
Nobody prepared me for the day that I would become a member of this exclusive club. I always wanted to have grandchildren but never really thought about what that meant. When we found out that we were going to be grandparents for the first time...I started on a journey to figure out 'what' I would be called. See, I had a Nanny & Pappy and a Grandma & Grandpa. When I was growing up, if my parents said we were going to Nanny & Pappy's house, I knew exactly where we were going. I didn't have to ask which grandparent's house. I liked that. So I knew that I would not be grandma because Jeremy's mother was already a grandma and she was called 'Grandma.' I lost my Nanny in 1991 and I really wanted to be called Nanny to honor her, but I was still distraught about losing her these 7 years later. So, I finally settled on 'Nana' because it was similar to Nanny. Nanny played a great role in my life and I had already named Jenifer after Nanny by giving her Nanny's middle name of Elizabeth.
Have a great day,
