G is for: Grandchildren in the Family Tree
When my husband, little boys and I were finally looking for a house of our own in 1983, this tree in the backyard called out to us. Yes! This is our home. We'll do what we have to do to have it. Scrimping, saving, and me working six nights a week accomplished our goal.
Over the years, there have been countless growing children, teens, dogs, cats, and parents hanging out there. When the grandchildren were old enough, my husband built a shelf to sit on, nets to surround the gaps between branches, steps and handles for safety.
I feel truly blessed to have my children and their children within easy visiting distance. Their smiling faces looking down from the branches will forever be a cherished memory.
