LETTERS TO MY GRANDSON ZACHARY ALEXANDER

This is for grandparents who for one reason or another don't get to see their grandchildren. I have a grandson that I have not seen since he was 6 months old. He is now 15 months old.

I know to a lot of people that may not seem like a long time but for me it feels like forever. When you love your grandchild so much and don't get to see them it tears your heart out.

Anyhow I was talking to a work colleague about this and she was telling me that she also has a grandchild that she does not get to see. She preceded to tell me that she writes letters to her grandchild telling him all kinds of things and she has a box that she puts all his birthday and christmas gifts in so that one day when he comes looking for them she can give it to him.

I liked the idea so I started to write letters for my grandson. I want him to know that we love him, his father loves him and that we always think about him.

I wanted to share this because I know that there are a lot of grandparents that do not get to see their grandchildren. This gives something constructive to do because one day that grandchild is going to want to know about his or her grandparents and this lets them know that are loved and it wasn't your idea not to see them.

In my case my son does not get to see his son because his wife left and took his son with her and will not tell anyone where she is at. They have not divorced yet and so that makes it hard legally to do anything about it yet.

Every now and then she calls wanting money for Zachary but she won't tell him where she is at. He tells her that when he know where Zachary is at and gets to see him then he will give her money. I mean you can't give somebody money if you don't know where to take it to.

These letters are also for Zachary to know that his father loves him very much also.

I hope everyone with grandchildren gets to be reunited with them soon.
They are ours just as much as they are their parents.

HOLY MOLY I JUST WET MYSELF

I was over at BLOGGING MoRe" Blog and read her post which I thought was funny but it reminded me of what happened to me when I was a young girl. I was about 10 years old and my sister and I had to sleep in the same bed. One night as I was sleeping I dreamed that I had to go pee and I went to the bathroom to get that wonderful relief when I woke up and realized what I had done.

I went and got cleaned up and changed clothes and went back to bed and all this time my sister was still asleep and I wasn't about to wake her up.

Needless to say the next morning my stepmother came in and found that the bed was wet but I had dry clothes on so my sister got blamed for it. Call me chicken but I wasn't about to say that it wasn't her.

To this day I have never told her any different you know water under the bridge and all that stuff.

I have had several dreams that I have gone to the bathroom but I don't get any relief so I eventually wake up and go.

I wonder if that is what happens to children that wet the bed. Do they dream that they are in the bathroom? Do they even feel they have to go until it is to late?

Things to ponder about:

HURRICANE KATRINA -- THANK YOU

I have noticed a lot of ads for Donating for Gulf Hurricane Victims and I appreciate it alot. I just want say a thank you for all the people and organizations that came to the Gulf Coast to help after Hurricane Katrina. I live on the Gulf Coast and was here during the Hurricane. Even after all this time we are still having problems with housing shortages. The cost of rentals have skyrocketed and people just can not afford to pay over 1000.00 a month to rent a place that is decent to live in. I was blessed that I did not sustain a lot of damage from the hurricane.

I was watching the news last night and they were saying that there was alot of people having what they call Survivor Depression. People that did not sustain a lot damage themselves but was depressed over the fact that so many people lost everything and they did not. I do not have that as I am an optimistic type of person.

I am a native of the Gulf Coast and I have gone through hurricanes before but not one as strong as what Katrina was. Will I stay here if another hurricane comes through? Probably but who knows. To me the worst thing was after the storm. The lack of power -- no lights or air and it was hot too, or not being able to get a hot bath. Not being able to cook which I didn't mind that but those MRe's were terrible ( my mother liked them ). We were without power for a week. Gas and being able to get any was a nightmare. We had power trucks from different states come and help to get power back on. There are still people coming and helping to rebuild and I applaud them. We are coming back better and stronger than ever. The feeling of togetherness as people work together helping each other is just amazing.

I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all the help and prayers that was given us.
