I have not been blogging too much lately-I have had more important things to do! My grandmother, age 91, from Reedley California is here visiting for a couple of weeks, with my parents. We have been having such a wonderful time with her. I love how she tells me everyday with tears in her eyes, what a wonderful husband I have and a beautiful home and children. I love her so much. She only met Ava for the first time last week, and they have become good buddies. They each learned how to sign 'I love you' to one another.
My dad updated his blog this morning about our time together and I couldn't help copy it and post it here. This is such a true description of my family. He is a deep thinker and a good writer. I like him alot:
.....sitting at the table at Urbans' house it dawned on me the 5 kids that eat there daily are all unique in their dispositions, their talents, their giftings, from 5 continents. Simeon likes to pester, however when it comes to helping the very needy Ava, Simeon is very quick to respond and help. Liesel, abides by all of the rules, always asks for permission and grieves deeply in her heart when her heart is broken. Jude is quiet, has a grin, loves music, and drifts away playing on his keyboard, actually it is quite a bit of pre programming and it sounds like Jude is playing classic renditions. He is very thoughtful. Hope is about 220 volts, very energetic, and her feelings she carries on her sleeves. She can only see when it is HER feelings that are hurt, and could NEVER imagine she might hurt someone else with her actions or words. Great Grandma Nagle defended them well in a family court hearing when we discussed how wise it is to let kids crawl on top of the table from one side to the other.
I've always said, and you can write it on my epitaph, that of all of God's GREAT creations, the Stars, the Moon, the Sun, the human Eye, the reproductive miracle, the most awesome and wonderful was the concept of family...a Great Grandma, a grandparent, mom and dad, brothers and sisters, uncles, aunts, children..... We did genealogy studies at Urbans yesterday and found ancestors born in 1490. We're looking forward to coming to the USA to watch little Urbans while Mom and Dad go appear before a judge to be legal parents of a little boy Joseph.
