Cookouts make me happy! Why, you ask. I'll tell you, when we have a cookout i know i will see all my children, grandchildren and other friends and family in one place. We will have lots of conversation, laughs and plenty of food. By the end of the day the children will be to exhausted to argue about bath and bed time. And we will all have another memory of being togeather to pull out and think about when we need it.-- Seeing all that love in one place makes me happy!

Cj, there is so much that brings me pleasure and happiness. I have my family around me all of the time. I take care of 2 of my grandchildren, so they are in and out of the house all of the time. What this Nana really adores are the quiet moments I have alone in the bath or anytime I am alone, to think about all of that love. :))) LMAO I hope that does not sound bad. But my house is a rather rowdy place all of the time.

I also babysit a little girl and i love it but when my Angel goes home at the end of the day i lock myself in the bathroom with a tub full of bubbles and just listen to the silence. I wouldn't trade my days with her for the world but put her with the boys when they get home and the silance later is amazing!

Knowing all my family is healthy and happy. The scent of suntan lotion. Hearing my grandson say, 'I love you granny' Knowing my oldest son doesn't have to go to prison for a bad decision he made. Going out to eat Chinese food.

I agree with you cjgrooms, those cookouts are fantastic. If you can't get family to come around for no other reason, they will come around for such a get together as this.
