"I've come to know that our families are a canvas on which we paint our greatest hopes---imperfect and sloppy, for we are all amateurs at life, but if we do not focus too much on our mistakes, a miraculous picture emerges. And we learn that it's not the beauty of the image that warrants our gratitude---it's the chance to paint."

Grandma's Little Helper
Steve and I have the best "every other weekends". That's when we get to watch our youngest grandchild while his parents are at work. He is so much fun and so smart. Aiden is 11 months old and is the happiest little guy I have ever known.
Yesterday I was emptying out the dishwasher. The first thing I always do is take out the silverware basket...and now I'm glad that I do. I turned my back to put the basket on the counter by the silverware drawer and this is what I saw when I turned back around.
