A Simple Sentiment

My 3 kids and my grandson are coming out to NM in October to see the balloon fiesta. I have been spending a lot of time figuring out where we can go and what might be fun and memorable for them to experience here in Albuquerque during the few days they will be here. I created a whole list of places to go and was going to either send the list to them or chat about the ideas when I talked to each of them to get their opinions. Well, I spoke to my son tonight for over two hours catching up on life and when I mentioned my plan, he very simply suggested that we do a little bit, but that it would be great if we all just hung out and spent time together...spent time visiting me. Those few words had a very big impact on me. They reminded me that doing 'big' things is not always the best way to make memories and reminded me that they don't need me to entertain them for them to be content, and reminded me how much I love and appreciate my kids and how blessed I am to have them in my life. Thank you Matthew. No picture zoom is not powerful enough to capture my smiling heart.
