time

Today I was on a new forum of local AP parents. One of the ladies picture is of a baby hand and an elderly hand. I balled at this. We so wanted a picture of Paul and his grandfather and we never got one. I don' t know that I'll even have that guilt go away. And to think, our phone came just a month and a half to late, just adds more to it. Just so sad for Paul that he'll never meet them, and of course for Chip, that both of his parents are no longer here. It's overwhelming for me to think about it, let alone to think what it must be for him.

I didn't know three of my four grandparents, and I'm okay. In fact, because of the stories that my Mom tells about her Mom, I feel like I knew her the best of all my grandparents even though she died more than 10 years after I was born.

I think you might worry too much about those things you can't change. What happened to the joy series? Those were good!!

sorry - I meant to write that my maternal grandmother died 10 years Before I was born.

The joy is still here, I just haven't had as much time to get on here in the last week or so.

I think you may have misunderstood me, or I didn't state it clear enough. I was saddened by the picture because we weren't able to get one of Paul and his grandfather before he passed (when we visited in Oct.) We found out later that it was an infected sore (not an infection like a flu) so we would have gladly let Paul in even just once so he could have held him and we could have gotten a picture. That's why the picture struck me so. But yes, I know I tend to dwell on things I can't change, always been a issue for me!

What's the new forum you were on? Local AP parents?

I wish there was a local AP parents group! Do you know any? Speaking of which, we should get together sometime. :)


Oh, the group was KCAP (Kansas City AP), so I guess kind of local???
