What made me think that grandchildren should respect their Grandparents? I guess I came from the old school of manners. When the grandparent can't correct the child or the child decides he can just mouth off to the grandparent, shocks me.

Just last week, we had an incident whereby one of our grandchildren, a 20 year old showed so much hate and anger that he no longer wants anything to do with us, yet he has spent many a summer vacation at our house and did whatever he wanted to do, even sleeping till 1:00 p.m. while everyone kept quiet for him. He hardly ever ate with us cause he wasn't hungry then, but when the dishes were done and we were ready to go someplace, he had to look for something to eat. He text messaged on his phone to his friends day and night, even while playing a game of cards with his grandfather. Is this something all kids do? He is not a kid, cause he is over 18.

Well maybe I'm wrong, but I was brought up to respect my elders, even if I didn't like what was said. In todays society they can mouth off and get away with it, and it seems quite all right.

It's pretty sad when the parents have lost control and side with this kind of behavior instead of correcting it, but then again, he probably does this with his parents also.

Maybe he is a lost cause. He cannot take critism even from family, and the reason I think he can't, is, because he is and feels guilty of every thing we talk to him about, and feels he knows better.

One day maybe he will get knocked in the head and hopefully wake up or forever stay ignorant.

I can't believe how much it snowed today. It started at about 1:00 this afternoon, and it is now about 3 to 4 inches deep. People are building snowmen and the drifts looks ominous.I think the last time I saw snow like this was 18 years ago. What is going on in the world? I thought this was global warming, shame on Al Gore.

Since Christmas, I've been wondering what I could do with spare time, other than exercising or cleaning house, so I decided to start making quilts again, I really enjoy doing this and after they are done, I want to keep all of them, butI give them to my kids,that way they will have something to remember me.

For Christmas, all of us tried to make our gifts, but the only quilt I was able to eek out was Duane's and Debbies. They loved it. Since then I have made my sister one and now I am in the process of making one for Tim.

Here are a couple of pictures of the completed ones, the third will be shown after it is completed.

Home Alone

Everyone was here for the holidays, and now everyone is gone. There was much preparation and anxiety, and wonderful times together. I miss it, but the solitude is nice too. My thoughts are of how wonderful all of my children turned out into their adulthood. What a blessing.

The weather was cold and windy and rainy most of the time, so time was spent inside. The house was warm and plenty of refreshments and treats to go around. This is the time to love and respect one another, and I saw all of that.

I hope everyone that reads my blog, has had a wonderful time with their families and my wishes are for a wonderful and happy New Year. Hoping and praying for a more peaceful 2010, and that the fighting will cease between man and country. May the Lord watch over everyone and allow peace to come into everyone's hearts.
