I am too young to have six grandchildren.

A few weeks ago I got the news that I was going to be a grandpa again. Our youngest daughter and our son-in-law decided it was time to have a baby. It has taken a couple of weeks for it to sink in and for me to now blog about it. I am not quite sure at this stage what to say. I am pleased and very happy but truthfully, I feel too young to be the grandfather of a sixth grandchild. Somehow it seems like a man should be 65 or 70 before this happens. Looking back I see now it happened this way because Preacher's Wife and I got married and started having children while we were still children ourselves.

Congratulations! Btw, God really spoke to us Sunday in your message. It was good to see you both.

Congratulaions Ron & Ann! Ron, it is wonderful to be grandparents when you are young and can still run with them!!! Your grandchildren are so blessed to have you as grandparents! We two are young (55) grandparents with 11 grandchildren! Talking about keeping up! Good for you! Maryjane
