My teenagers....

I brag on my teenagers every once in awhile, please humor me as I do it again.

About a month ago my nearly 90yo grandfather had a health scare. Scared me enough that I made arrangements to travel 16 hours to spend a week with him. My family is not generally very close, so any time I get to spend with him is incredibly valuable to me. My girls also took a week off their jobs to come with me even though they had the option to stay home since my mother lives with us.

Today we were going to go to the museum (he was supposed to still be in the hospital, but he got out early), but the home health nurse and the Realtor were both running behind. Rather than complain they went quietly in the other room and entertained themselves.

My grandfather is quite the artist and when he tried to show them something they already knew (they are amazing artists themselves) they sat up, paid attention, and thanked him. Oldest even made pot roast for dinner and helped me put together frozen dinners for him so he can have real food on days my aunt has to work.

I'm so proud of them. ♡♥♡♥♡
