The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

When Did This Happen?
My DIL had a party for my son this past weekend, his birthday is in a couple of days and we were celebrating .The big news, he is going to be thirty, my question, when did this happen? Where did all the time go, how did I get old enough to have a son thirty years old?
It was a nice celebration, we had crabs, which was quite a treat, it had been years since I have eaten crabs. DIL had set up the festivities outside, rain kept us in (badly needed rain so there was no complaints) tables were set up with newspaper and the "picking" began.
Oldest granddaughter was a quick learner and we had her "picking" in no time, grandson wouldn't touch them or eat any crab, so it was hot dogs for him. Little Miss found the crabs quite entertaining but daddy did all her "picking." After everyone had eaten their full, we spent the rest of the time picking what was left over, while enjoying each others company.
DIL sent me some photos of the crab cakes she made with the leftovers, they looked delicious
Great fun was had by all, not often we are all able to be together so this was a treat. Wishing my son a very happy birthday, a very blessed man.
