The men in my life :o)

I'm very slow at the blogging....but hope to improve so I do not miss or lose any of those precious great is this whole idea of blogging! I am feeling particularly blessed today when I check out the blogs of my family and see all of the blessings I have received in my life all together on a few pages. Our two most recent blessings are Lewis and Noah. Lewis is my new son-in-law who is married to Beverley and they live in San Diego. He is a wonderful young man, another choice and noble son-in-law. When the Lord first blessed my life with Kim's Sam I could not believe there could ever be another so valiant and wonderful and then along came Mandy's Lucas....even to say his name brings a smile to your heart......then Trudi's Tyler came into our lives....words cannot even express the attributes of this young man....I was recently privileged to witness his spirit soar and am humbled by his strength and valor. Now it seemed my cup was overflowing with wonderful sons-in-law and then I truly came to know and appreciate Beverley's Lewis and can't hardly believe that I have been blessed yet again so abundantly with another Knight in Shining Armor for my youngest princess Beverley. It warms my heart to see how happy Lewis makes Beverley and how happy they both are in their life:o) Any Mom knows there is nothing so comforting and delicious as to know that your precious children are loved, cherished and cared for so well. I want Lewis to know how much I love him and what a joy he is to me and to all of us and how grateful I am that he never wavered in his commitment to Beverley and the happy ever after. I deem it a real privilege to call him my friend..not to mention the fact that he has a most healthy appreciation of one of lifes most crucial necessities....chocolate:o)

Then there is Noah......I feel there will be volumes written about this Little Prince (not to take away for one moment from the other little princes and princesses with whom I have been blessed) This little guy has personality with a capital P:o) He is only gorgeous, a fighter....yet calm as a lake in himself....has a smile that seems to be 'built-in'........soooooo cuddly yet independent...even at his tender age.......the BOSS for sure....Trudi and Tyler are already wrapped around the finger and just sit gazing adoringly at him. What a lucky little boy he is! How my heart swelled when I heard his first cry and how it soared when I saw his beautiful glow. He truly is a Prince.....his Father is a King.........King of Kings:o)

This blog would not be complete without mention of the other wonderful men in my life. Scott my son who is the cream in my barley cup and was the 'only man in my life' for a quite a while. Scott has filled my life with joy and happiness and lots and lots of surprises. He has a kind and generous heart and is an awesomely brilliant musician with a great voice. He has been blessed with a really keen intellect and tons and tons of charisma. He would seriously charm the birds right out of the trees. He wrapped me around his heart the moment I first saw him and I am more grateful for him than I could ever put into words.

When I met and married Malcolm almost four years ago, his son Nathaniel came into my life. Nathaniel means a gift from God:o)This young man accepted me and included me and showed me love. We have had lots of ups and downs since then which has given me lots of insight into his unconditional loving and forgiving nature. His constant respect to his Father is an indicator both of his love for him and his true and loyal heart. My life has been enriched by knowing Nathaniel and I hope he knows that I love him as if he were my own.

And this brings me to Malcolm...last but of course not least, my husband, my buddy and my anam cara. Malcolm is the best person who ever happened to me. Our almost-four-year-old marriage has

been a rollercoaster so far. Two broken vessels with yours and mine but no ours to bond us together and enough luggage between us to fill Grand Central Station is a tall order. I am very happy to say because we truly love each other and because we are in total agreement about the most important truths in life we are richly blessed. Together we have learned that marriage is a twenty-four seven job, hard work but the benefits are great and we know that the retirement plan is out of this world:o) I love him with my whole heart and I always will. I know he loves me too.

Well I am truly humbled by the blessings of each one of these 'men in my life' and I am grateful beyond description and want them to know I love them.

PS. Noah is in with the men because he is the new star in my sky.....I will be writing about my other 'little treasures' on a later blog.
