The world is a chilly place today in New England. But my two grandchildren enjoy their family and their electronic toys.
Soon I will have a third grandchild who will live only two hours from my home. The two grandchildren who are already part of family live in the Great North Woods – four hours from my home on a day with light traffic.
It seems as if it were yesterday when I was a young mother, wondering whether the children I cared for would find a better world than the one I was born into.
The jury is still out on the answer to that question.
But my youngest child, now a man and almost a father, is building a good foundation for his young family. The frame is strong and it envelopes his niece and nephew without locking them down.
