Sandra and I just had a several-day visit from my youngest daughter Sharyl and her husband Kevin. They live in Bettendorf, Iowa, so we don't get to see them very often in Florida. During the time they were here we had a wonderful time. It is always so sad when they leave to go back home.
I love having our kids visit, and lucky me, I will soon be having my second daughter Tara come visit with us for several days. She lives in Urbandale, Iowa, a suburb of Des Moines. I am very tight with the girls. We have gone through much together. As with Sharyl, because Tara lives so far away from us our visits are very limited, so each one is very special.
My youngest son Paul Jr. has said he and his new wife Sherry will also visit soon. We look forward to meeting Sherry. They live in Muscatine, Iowa, so again, we don't get to see Paul very often.
The older we get, the more special it is to see our kids. I think the girls try harder to visit us because I think they get the fact that our visits will be extremely limited due to our advanced ages.
