Five Little Blessings with a Sixth on the Way!

Can I just say what a blessing these five little ones are to us? To think that four years ago, when EZ was diagnosed on January 20th of 2010, we had one set of twin grandchildren, Natalie and Nathan. Our daughter Tara was expecting our second set of twin grandchildren, Samantha and Samuel, that February. A year later, our daughter Leah gave birth to our little singleton, Emery, and so there were five. In May, Emery will have a little brother and there will be six! We are beyond ecstatic!

When we were told that EZ had Multiple Myeloma, we were so very uncertain about what the future held. And though the past four years have had their share of peaks and valleys, we can say without a doubt that these five have been the best medicine, and brought the most joy! Their giggles, exuberance, cuddles, and love have brought us smiles on even the most painful of days. We are so grateful for our family and the love we share. This Grandma and Grandpa will never take it for granted, as we treasure each day with them. God is so very good. 

I will sing of the Lord's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. Psalm 89:1


  1. And they love you too :) They might even say, "We love you more!"

  2. Hi Linda and Family- these pics are beyond adorable! You have such a beautiful family- adults, and grandkids! I am so happy for EZ's continued remission status so all of you can enjoy so many precious moments together. Seriously, your family and pictures take my breath away with how sweet they are! xoxo Julie

  3. Dear Linda,
    Such a lovely pic of your adorable and beautiful grandchildren! Children are a beautiful blessing from God. How we can cherish them. They bring much cheer to us. I share the same joy with you. My daughter has 4 boys from 2mo to 6 years. Psalm 127:3-5 NIV
    [3] Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. [4] Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. [5] 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them …
    Enjoy your blessings!
