shocking

Hi Grandma's--It was so nice reading all your great posts!!!! This is what I ment by getting some activity around here. We all have stories to tell.....Some good, some not so good but I'm sure we'd all love to hear them. I know I would. Now you have to admit grandma's have the greatest minds around! With that said maybe some of us can come up with some other kinds of activities. Let me start with a question that I know everyone can answer. Besides having kids and grandkids, "What was the luckiest thing that ever happened to you?....Happiness to all.....

The luckiest thing for me would have to be meeting my second husband. He was my soulmate and the love of my life.

I am the grandmother of four. Two of my grandchldren, both girls, age 11 and 14 live with their parents in the same town as I do. I use to "babysit" them often when they are younger....but not anymore since the oldest is 14, almost 15. I miss doing that, but then I seem to be getting older, and don't have as much energy as I use to have, so maybe it's just as well.

My other two grandchildren are the victums of divorce. My Ex DIL divorced my son 2 years ago. She was tired of being married and wanted to be free to do her own thing. She tricked my good son into getting full custody of their 2 children, now a boy of 8, and a girl of 11. She now works in Arizona,...which is a 1100 mile trip by car for my son to see his children. They were married for 12 years. I get to see these 2 grandchildren about twice a year. I cannot call them, as their mother leaves her answering machine on all the time....even my son has a tough time talking to his children.

I'm glad to have my two in town here with me.

Thank you
Nicole was our Angel from heaven.She would have turned 9 on July 2nd.My husband and I came home from Dryden to a phone message on our answering machine,it was my step-son calling to tell us Nicole had passed away.I miss her smile,her laughter,her hugs every minute of everyday.There is not a moment that I don't think of her,and my heart breaks a little more every time.
This will be our first Christmas without Nicole in our lives,I know she is with me every day.
I didn't think I would be able to talk about her without crying,but as I write this I am smiling just thinking of her,coming in to say goodnight Grandma,I love you.
Sorry I guess I am rambling on.

ramble all you want Theresa. I can not imagine how it is to lose a child/g-child have had miscarriages and that was hard enough. I will remember you at Christmas as know it will be hard for you.

Welcome Carbokid, nice to have you here on FC. I can identify with you and your sadness. But I thank God every day for the love of my g-children tho' due to miles between us now that Kari is married and in Ft Lewis, WA I don't get to see her and fam and at beginning of New Year will not see her brother either (they are my oldest 2) as he along with Dad and Step Mom are moving to Iowa. BUT I know where they are and they love me so that is a big plus. There were several years tho' they were in this area I did not get to see or talk with them LONG story but all is well now. Okay now it is me who says sorry for rambling. Back to bed with me

"Ramble on" all you want to Theresa, that's what we're here for.

As long as Nicole is in your memories, she is still with you. She may be with God now, but the love she shared with everyone who knew her is still very much here.
You will reunite with her one day and that love will be renewed and strengthened the instant your souls touch.

Blessings on all the grandparents who have lost a grandchild. They are as dear to the heart as if they had been born to us

Patti, I wish I could take some of your pain away. Remember that I love you and my prayers are with you and friends.

Yes Raggd3, you are right, that's what we're here for to "ramble on". Only those who have known the tragedy of the loss of a child/grandchild can truly understand their sorrow. I hope they find comfort in the concern of others here. Many blesssing and lots of hugs to all......

I was so angry when Nicole died,how could God take her from us,she had her whole life ahead of her,I am not suppose to outlive my granddaughter.I honestly don't know if I will ever understand why it happened.I wanted to scream how unfair it all was.My heart broke that day and it is still in pieces,Nicole was my heart,my first grandchild,I loved her so much.And I think of her every minute of everyday.She loved school,she loved her family and her friends.She could always make me smile,I miss her hugs,I miss hearing I love you from her,I tell her everyday I love her and I miss her so much.
I know Nicole is happy,she is with God and he is holding her close.She is smiling and no longer in pain.And I know one day I will be with her.
Sorry again for going on.
