Smiley thoughts: Ashley has been in Korea and Sadie is in Alaska. Megan, Rochelle and I are in Cedar Rapids, and Danny, Annie, Danisha, and Bob are in Ames. Carly is in Waterville, Kaley is in Cedar Falls, and Allie is in Kentucky. Patrick just got back from New York and Brian and Maddie are graduating, about to move to colleges in Cedar Falls and Kentucky. We’re experiencing different cultures and living in different places but the connection is still there.
Technology has become important in having that tie and it’s growing stronger and stronger as I get older. There are 29 grandchildren and 13 of us have gone our own directions with each others full support, love, and advice.
With that in mind, Grandma can smile because she knows she has done her job.
