Grandma Sadness

My Daughter Rach was with a man for a little over 2 years. He has 3 kiddo's and she has the 1. I have always been excepting of his kids and called them my own Grandchildren. They had plans of getting married, and this touched my heart that she finally found someone that she truly loved and have a family like she has always wanted. Well things started going bad, I won't go into all the details, but they had a split and it is over totally over with no hope of getting back together. So now this poor Grandma is down 3 grand kids. It hurts my heart that I can not see his kids(he says NO) . I can understand to some degree. But I whole hearted love them.
I hope that they will remember me in a good way, which I'm sure they will beings that they were 9, 7, and 5. I just don't know what else to do, but grieve for them and move on, I guess!

Awwww Robyn...that totally sux!

It's just a shame that in todays society we can treat each other (and our children) like a pet!

I know you are heartbroken, and the poor kids....I can't imagine their heartbreak!
God is in control of this whole situation!

Robyn, I'm so sorry! I can't even imagine. This breaks my heart. I wish there was something I could do for you...

Alicia said...

Oh Robyn....that is so sad! I'm sure they miss you so much too!!!! Would you be able to write them letters, send them cards for holidays and birthdays? That could be a way to keep in touch.

My heart goes out to you, Robyn, and also for those poor kids. They lost a wonderful grandma. I'm sure they will remember you. I hope that his heart softens and will allow you to be in their lives.

Here is the recipe for the cookies Robyn! Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies
1/4 pound of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon soda
2 packages (13oz each) Reese's miniature peanut butter cups (unwrapped)
miniature muffin pan

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream (thoroughly mix) butter, sugars and peanut butter. Mix in egg and vanilla until blended. Add flour, soda and salt until well blended. Mix with electric hand mixer for two minutes.
Drop a small amount of the dough into each ungreased cup of a miniature muffin pan. I actually devide dough and refrigerate half for a later time...and then break down the other half into 4 equal parts...then 8 equal parts... making it easier to get 24 equal balls of dough for the ungreased muffin pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned..
Remove from oven and immediately press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie until only the top shows. Cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pans, I use a toothpick to gently turn and loosen.
Makes 48 cookies

That is so sad...I am so sorry for both you and the children. They will remember you in a good way and maybe someday he will change his mind.

Oh Robin.....bless your darling sweet heart girl!! I feel you.......and you are in my prayers. All of you, my bloggy friends, always are.
I have an (ex) stepdaughter that I didn't see or hear from for 13 years and guess what???
She somehow found me almost 2 years ago and said that she had been looking for me and that she always wanted to thank me for always being so kind to her. I cried for joy when I heart from her!! She and I picked right up where we had left off and we are still fast and true friends. You never know day you may pick up the phone and it may be one of them. Believe that it can happen okay?

Steady On
