Winter Sunday

My long time readers know that I am a big Broncos fan - but for the last five or six years, there has been very little to cheer about.  So, for today the Broncos are in the playoffs.  You may say their chances are less than average, but let's wait to see what happens.  I will enjoy watching a play off game regardless of the outcome.

My little granddaughter is here with me today.  Her father, my son, skyped us this morning.  How nice it was to see him!  I was amazed at how a little 15 month old would sit still and wait for him to appear on the screen, then he did appear, we talked, and then they touched hands.  It was hard for me not to cry.  It's my humble opinion that families should not be so far apart.  At least they can see each other via skype though.

So, that's my story today.  Just a quiet day, watching a football game with a toddler.

Grateful for the grace of God that allows me to be a sober grandmother.

That is touching. I agree that I don't think that families need to be so far apart. It is tough on all concerned. Sounds like you are having a good, relaxing day.

Didn't the Broncos win? Tebow? Ignore this if I'm wrong. Go Mary!

I hope your son gets to really hold his little one soon.

As much as it pains me to congratulate a Broncos fan (I LOVE the Browns, and still have to watch "The Drive" every year on some highlight reel), I am delighted to say congrats to you and to Tim Tebow and the Broncos. I hate the Steelers more, and I love seeing a nice young fellow like Tim Tebow quiet the naysayers and Christian bashers.

Whew, that was tough for me lol

Mary, the Broncos won - with Quarterback Tim Tebow! YAY!

Scott, The game with the "drive" was the first football game I ever watched. I have been hooked ever since. I think the game yesterday was the first one since then that was as exciting (to a Broncos fan).
