YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT UNTIL YOU DIDN'T GET IT EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE

Yesterday my daughter posted This... ...and said,"Thought I might be...."


And then she wrote, " But I'm not..." And this picture accompanied it.Until then I hadn't thought there was even a possibility that she might be pregnant. And now I'm sad. Sad for the unpossibility.

All day I've been thinking about this. The sadness. Everyone experiences sadness and a lot of time we experience sadness for things in the future that may or may not even happen. Why not experience happiness for things in the future that very well may happen?

So, tonight, I am thinking of the happy possibility that there are grandchildren of Phil's and my future, waiting to be born. Looking over our shoulders, whispering, "Just you wait. We're a comin' and we're gonna be cute and we're gonna be good." Well, I suppose, being Celestial beings, as they are, they use proper English but just the same, I'm "thinking happy," good grammar or not.


And daughter, maybe there's one, just like this one, that is yours.

OK that is one thing I can say that Canada has going for it...Medical! $6000 to have a baby!? Nada, nothing, zippo...just pay the premiums and everything at the doctor or hospital is free and some medicines too.

And here it is free and still no grandchildren!

I'm sorry about Hillary's and your disappointment. There is always expectation... even when they're not planned.

Don't we all wish we could peek into heaven and see the grands all lined up? I look at my grands and think... who could have ever imagined.

That is a funny picture. If its meant to be, it will be, eventually.

I love the baby in the cuppy. It is just the most darling. I am going to rush to Hilly's blog as soon as I am done with yours. I don't want her to be sad. You could have my children as grandchildren, too. Because then you will seriously have all the cutest and nicest grandchildren in the world!

I'm better people. Thank you Mom, for (finally) responding to my saddness blog. Now I wish you hadn't because it made you sad. When will I learn. loveyoutheverymostofall.

Oh, I worry that I will never have another grandbaby. My son doesn't seem to want to get married, and my other daughter doesn't want kids--and the grunge one? hmmmm---who knows?

I only have Hailey----poor thing---I'm already bugging her for another one...
