From the old folks home!

Will wonders never cease? Gram and I are on board the Elrey Family Choo Choo. We are thinking about each one of you and the things you have written on the blog. It has touched our hearts and we look forward each day with much anticipation to reading the things that you tell us about. We particularly want you new mothers to know that we are praying for you each day. With one or two or three or four Children it is still a sacred, mind boggling challenge and we love each one of you for making the sacrifice of your time and personal lives to make room for these special spirits with which the Lord has entrusted you. We cannot express how grateful we are for the blessings which Auntie "M" has received and for the blessings that have come to each of you as answers to prayers that are so sacred and unique to each one of you. This blog is a wonderful way for us to keep in touch and to share our thoughts on many subjects. We hope that we can be source inspiration and strength to each other and that our sense of humor will always be close at hand. Well, we have launched the old folks ship, we will try to keep it upright. Love to all, Gram and Gramp

I love this blog even more. I can just sit here and imagine Gram and Gramps sitting at the puter just typing way, It makes me feel a little closer to them. I love you both. You two are so hip and with it! We just love you to death.

HOORAY! How great is it to have our grandparents share their thoughts with us, especially with those of us who are so far away. Thank you, Gramps and Grams for taking the time to write. I am so excited to read what you have to say. I love you very much!

I, too am grateful for the Blogs. How else would I have been inspired by your words. It has been a long time since I heard you from the pulpit but the time seems short this way. Yes, and too I miss hearing advice from my own parents, Vern and Eathel. Now Im crying . I love you bothe. The pictures of July are beautiful. We live in the promised land.
