Eternal Father,

As I think back in these many years,

nothing compares with the joy of

becoming a father/mother and a grandfather/grandmother.

You have so blessed my wife and me with our children,

their spouses, and now our grandchildren.

Nothing, nothing compares with having a family full of love and devotion.

Watching our babies grow to adulthood is the greatest joy of our life.

You are so generous with your love for us;

its manifestation is our family.

Glory be ot God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus,

let your radience continue to shine in our family.
