Thanksgiving Gratitude Challenge  Week 3 - by Debe Maxwell, CRS 

 

I Am Driving!

Tristan at the Market

 How fast they grow up!  Before you know they are driving and you wonder where the time went!  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my little miracle.  

Today is just a little more special because my son and his wife celebrated their sixth anniversary yesterday.  With everything going on with my listing, Rick and I still volunteered to watch Tristan overnight so that the two lovebirds could get a little alone time. 

In the meantime, I had to go to the market to get some snacks and Tristan told me what market we should go to.  (Apparently, he knew there were car baskets at Bashas!  Leave it to the little one!

My Little Miracle

Courthouse Butte and Bell RockI call Tristan our little miracle because we never thought we would ever be grandparents. We were fortunate that the universe had other plans and that my son Ricky decided to move with us to Arizona. Once he got here, he was still trying to find himself. He went on hikes daily and became an accomplished guide and was able to help people climb Bell Rock.  Well, he met a couch surfer from Switzerland and the rest is history! Even after their marriage, we did not expect a little miracle to come along....but he did! 

 

A Wonderful Energy Entered Our Lives

We almost forgot what wonderful energy is brought by the pure innocence of a child. Tristan brings with him an energy that is full of love. We are fortunate to be with him every Saturday while his mom and dad work. I am thankful for this gift that God has given us. I believe that Tristan has brought us even closer as a family. We know how lucky we are and it makes us even more grateful.  One thing we do not do is take Tristan for granted. Every day we spend with him is a gift in and of itself.

Hi Beth Atalay,

Thank you. When we are young and just starting off, we don't realize what awaits us. This is more than I ever would have realized.

Hi Michael Jacobs,

I have not turned down a single ask from my kids when it comes to watching Tristan. I can see growth changes from week to week.

Hi Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089,

He had a good friend that basically let "couch surfers" stay and the two of them would take the visitors out on hikes!
