Serendipity Sundays ~ How Lucky Am I

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I feel so blessed to have my two children live and work in Austin and even sharing a profession I love….real estate.

My daughter and her husband have 3 children, Hailey, Trey and Maggie. My son and his wife have two children Hudson and Beckett. I admit my grands are the “apple of my eye” and I feel so fortunate to be a part of their lives as they grow up. My grans range in age from 6 to 25. Loving each other and having fun together is the easiest thing they do! Each one of them brings a smile to my lips and a song in my heart. How lucky am I?

Hello Dorie - yes, you are quite fortunate.  The quote you share is new-to-me.  Both the words as well as the author.  A nice sentiment.

For sure, Dorie... you are beyond fortunate. We are fortunate to have four wonderful grands, ourselves, but not as fortunate as you in that none of them live close by.
