At that time, I didn't think much good could come of something like divorce. To this day, I still sometimes think about how things could have been different.
Yet, God is able to make good things come of less than desirable situations.
My children now have eight grandparents who shamelessly love on them.
This summer, all eight grandparents have come to visit us and by us, I mean the kids because Tony and I aren't nearly as cute or entertaining. (Well, Tony is pretty cute, but that's besides the point.)
Anyways, I love that it is next to impossible to tell which grandparents are related by blood and which are related through marriage. They all just love our kiddos so much and are so good to them.
Perhaps our family lives didn't end up the way we'd hoped, but I'd say the grandparent situation is very, very good. For that, I'm grateful.
Here is one of many pictures demonstrating that awesome grandparent situation.
