Presents We Never Expected

Life has a way of providing us with presents we never knew would come to us.

I am blessed with two wonderful grandchildren. They live far away and I haven't seen them since they were little toddlers.

As I have written previously, my husband and I ended up in Las Vegas after a trip that took us across the country when we first met.

I must admit that I miss my family, and often feel envious of other people who have their children and grandchildren here in Vegas.

The decision to settle here was ours, and realistically, I understand that had we stayed back in Illinois where they live, my life might have been quite different over the past thirty plus years. However, I was not forced to stay here. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with a specific person, and in so doing, I made the choice to stay here with him.

If one is realistic, they understand that the decisions they make are their own responsibility. However, that doesn't entirely change the ramifications of those choices.

Now at eighty four, it appears that we won't be able to go back to see the family that lives in Illinois, so I pray daily that they may come and visit us.

My present husband's daughter has settled in Australia, and she has come to visit a few times, giving us the chance to spend time with her and the two wonderful sons she has produced. It's always a joy to hear her voice on the phone, and I consider myself blessed to have inherited this delightful woman and her family.

Life has a strange way of giving us gifts that we never expected. My husband's daughter is such a present for which I am forever grateful.
