Is This The Little Girl I Carried?

Did you hear my exciting news? I am going to be a grandmother again! Some of you may know that Rachel of Seeking Delightful Pleasures is my daughter. Last weekend on their way home from their beach trip they dropped by here to bring me a present.

Believe me, I was surprised by their sweet gift. It took me a couple of seconds to comprehend the news. I knew they were ready for children, But Guys That Was Quick!

My little girl is all grown up and ready for children of her own.

Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

  5. As some of you may know this will be my 8th grandchild, but the only one to live close by. I am thrilled to know that I will be able to see this sweet baby often. I miss my other babies and love to visit with them.

  11. I know I typed out a comment earlier today, now where it went I do not know. Here I go again...
    Congratulations, you a will have eight grandchildren, how lucky are you? The drawing of your daughter is so cute. My youngest daughter has red hair, I have a softspot for "red heads".
    In response to your ATC question, I would love to do a little trading. I made a few on Saturday and had so much fun.
    I never realized they were so small. The size of a playing card.
    My daighter said maybe I could cover a whoe deck of cards. That would be an undertaking for sure.

  14. CONGRATULATIONS! I got the same news from my son on Mother's Day ( my first grandbaby is due in early December) so I really know how happy and excited you are! MY son and his wife live in Denver, CO, so it will be long distance relationship for me, but I'm still "over the moon" happy about it and looking into booking flights out west quite frequently :-)
