My World. Simple As That.

As I look back on my life, the successes and failures, it is safe to say that I should have paid more attention to my family and less attention to work and the selfish part of me.

It is only with the wisdom of geting older that I am finally realizing that as Bob Carlisle said in Butterfly Kisses, “In all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right”

Since we are spread out a bit these days, it is not easy getting everyone together for one picture, so there are two:

Alicia with the “Ginger Grandchildren” Adeline and Theodore, Elissa’s children.

Auntie Kelliann, Maddox, Elissa, Alicia and Megan (Maddox’s mom)

I did  the best I could with what I knew at the time and now I take great joy in seeing my girls all grown up, beautiful and successful. And grandchildren. . .  what more can I say? Oh, yes, two great son in laws, Cole and Andrew.

Thank you for endulging me.

    Ray, we all do the best we can. And imo, being raised by great parents, we did ok. We all could have done better, looking back, but that is the experiment of being parents.

      A good way to describe it, friend…an experiment An ever evolving experiment. For the record, I was not as melancholy as it may have come accross. Hope all is well with you and yours.
