It's my birthday Sunday! Mary and Pam have planned a nice afternoon for me to celebrate the day. Sunday is hard to get us together as we all have obligations that keep us parted. When I was little in a small town, Sunday was spent visiting your grandparents after church. We first went to my Mom's parents for a few hours and then ended up at my Dad's parents until supper time. Then it was time to watch Gunsmoke or Bonanza. It's really too long ago to remember which. This was easy to do as both sets lived in the same small town and were just minutes away. Not so anymore. My girls didn't grow up like this as grandparents were states away. Now only two of my grandchildren get to have this relationship with one set of grandparents. But, I get to see them today and will spend the night and tomorrow for my birthday. They like it when I spend the night with them and I like it too. Times are different, but that doesn't mean they can't be just as good or better.
