“Together we can do so much.” Helen Keller

“…groups are very important because they force us to progress. If you’re all alone, all you can do is laugh at yourself, but if you’re with others, you’ll laugh and then immediately act. Groups challenge us. Groups allow us to choose our affinities. Groups create a collective energy, and ecstasy comes more easily because everyone infects everyone else.” – The Witch of Portobello by Paul Coelho

Yesterday was so very nice for me. I cared for my 2 month old and 2 1/2 year old grandsons. I was there all day while Mom and Dad worked. We had fun while the baby slept. My older grandson even napped for 4 hours. He woke up in great spirits. The three of us had fun "together". The younger grandson has discovered that he can see many things now and screeches in delight at his own will when something particulary interests him most often a face he sees. I love being a Nana such a wonderful gift from above...thank you God!
Every Sunday I receive email from Lori Koop at She sends you one word to inspire you throughout the week. This week the focus word is together. I am thankful I am together with my sons, DIL and grandsons. The Hellen Keller quote and the words of Paul Coelho I borrowed from her email she sent me today. I wanted to share them with you! I also wanted to share pictures of my grandsons having fun with Nana.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
