A few days ago I expressed my frustration level with my own inability to do two “simple” tasks — prepare our taxes and post some pictures of our first great-grandchild.
In regard to the taxes, I am blessed that Bill, a very busy accountant who did our taxes for years, didn’t even blink an eye when I called him in April in a semi-panic and asked him to do them this year too, because I realized I was in over my head. They have already been electronically filed! Thank you God for the very capable, pleasant, not-easily-ruffled, expert-at-taxes Bill for “pulling my bacon out of the fire” and doing our taxes at the last minute!
Now, let me just explain my priorities here. While I love “my angel” Bill and certainly respect the government and their out-of-date, confusing tax system, the most important of my two concerns, BY FAR, was my inability to post the pictures of our first ever great-grandchild. Not just because of his “first-ever” status, but because he is just pretty darn cute.
So then, in stepped my second angel — Barb at Half Past Kissin’ Time. She offered to help me post the pictures. I won’t bore you with all the details, but let’s just say Barb’s great ideas could only take us so far when put up against the wall of my legendary inabilities! So, Barb offered to “guest post” them, which I had no clue how to do — but she did! She put the pictures on HER blog, and then all I had to do was link them (here). How cool is that?
Thank you God for my blogging friend Barb and her how-can-I-help attitude and limitless patience that has finally allowed me to share these pictures of our darling newest addition to our family.
BTW, our sweet and funny daughter-in-law, Dilly (this is her and Gunny’s first grandchild) has suggested that great-nana just doesn’t “flow” — so she’s going to call me Nana the Great. Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
