Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought

by Mary May Larmoyeux

You may recall a recent Grand Connection blog called "If You Could Go Back in Time ... What Would You Do Differently?" I think the memories in Pops' and my home are what prompted me to write it. You see, we are moving.

We've lived in this house for 28 years.

Many thanks for the comments that many of you wrote about turning back the hands of time—to once again be a young mother.  Karen, you are so right about resting in the presence of God in all stages of life. And Rita, that was a great tip about putting the chore list for the kids on the refrigerator, instead of constant reminders. (That's a good tip for grandkids, too.)

I think that you would enjoy an article that is in FamilyLife's current webzine. It's called:

If I Could Be a Young Mom Again
Grandmothers share what they would do differently as young moms.

Have a great week,
