The Fourth Generation

Last weekend I spent the weekend visiting my great nephew.....Now I do feel old.  There is nothing like a new baby in your arms to fill your heart.  On father's day I took my Dad to visit his great grandson, Mac.  We had such a nice time - 4 generations together.

When I step back and look at the many roles I have played in life the best would have to be those involved in parenting. Sometimes it's tough, sometimes frustrating and sometimes sad but it has been a very happy, loving experience for me. 

 I was blessed with the best parents in the world ( I think so anyway). I have a wonderful son and now daughter in law and now I am seeing my beautiful Dad and Mum become a great grandparents.  How truly lucky and loved I feel. 

It's hard to believe that my little brother (3rd child) is the first grandparent in the family!  Dad so enjoyed his weekend.
