TimmTubKidsI'm grateful for "Mini-Me's".

As recently as 25 years ago I was in the camp that thought: "Kids, no thank you" 

Now I'm hoping to live long enough to see grandchildren... lots of them! (but not to soon as my daughter is only 19 and my son is 18 years old)

My favorite piece of literature says: "You must have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth." (Genesis 9:7 Good News Translation). I wish I would have taken heed much sooner in life but then again it took 40 years to find someone who would put up with me, much less my children. The best part, as I have said in many other posts, my mother did not get her wish that my children be little hellions like I was. My kids are PERFECT!

I'm grateful that at this time I have decendents. Of course I wish my family portrait would look more like this one but at 65 it's just not in the cards for me.

reunionMy children have brought me more joy then I ever could have imagined back 20 years ago. When ever I reflect on their lives it always brings me to an attitude of gratitude. I hope that my parents are able to look down from heaven and say "for as much of a pain in the ass Bobby was he has done good and made up for all the pain and sorrow by giving us two wonderful grandchildren through him. (I have to say that because my sister and my brother also gave them wonderful grandchildren) Mom and Dad would be proud.

I hope everyone reading this have many reasons for an attitude of gratitude. Wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving 2019 and thanks again to Debe Maxwell, CRS for the NOVEMBER 2019 THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE CHALLENGE.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well Michael Jacobs .  As you know my children are a constant joy to me. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long but then again it took me a long time to "grow up" enough to have children.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - Your children are a blessing and you are too! You have every reason on earth to be proud of how you raised them and I'm sure your parents were just as proud of you but their generation had a different way of expressing themselves. The fact that you didn't have them earlier is life doesn't matter. Their destiny was already in the planning. To everything there is a season... and a reason.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm,

Your children have turned out to be wonderful and they have made their dad very proud indeed.

Who would have thunk it?  Back in the day we never would have known what a blessing children could be. You know how important family is and that is a true blessing. Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks James Dray . I have to give the credit to my Grandma Lydia. If anyone prayed enough prayers to bring me around it had to be her.

Thank you Sheri Sperry - MCNE® . My appreciation for family came after seeing my own fall apart after my moms death (murder). Some members were totally focused on their inheritance and it tore our family apart. Thankfully, now, 20 some years later 3 out of 4 of us are whole again.

Thanks Wayne Martin . Very few would call me bad any more these days but it may not be to hard to find a few folks that think I'm an ass.

Bobby you are an awesome guy! So you had a few years that you were 'bad' but I highly doubt it was bad - you were just looking for the right woman!  You are a very blessed man!

I didn't give them a lot of reasons to be proud Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland but if they can look down from heaven they may be proud today.

Hi Bob,
My parents didn't have children until being married for 15 years and look at what they got!  LOL

You are blessed to have such a wonderful family... past, present, and future.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Thank you for the kind words, Bob.  And, what I didn't say in my last comment was how blessed your family is to have you in their lives.  None of us are perfect but you've certainly proven yourself to be a wonderful human and devoted family man.

Hi Bob... the point at the end of the day is that you have two wonderful children who will become productive citizens in the very near future. I've often felt it's not worth worrying about what might have been... I believe things work out the way they've been intended to do. Wishing you and yours the most wonderful of Thanksgiving celebrations. I am grateful for my friendship with you this year and every year!
