“Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.”
I’ve always heard that being a grandmother was one of the greatest joys in life. Well, I can honestly say that it is…and so much more! It’s just grand! Our first grandchild, Ella Mae, was born last May and our daughter-in-love was able to stay home with her for the first 7 months. After the Christmas holidays, she returned to work part-time, and guess who is getting to go to her house to play, laugh, sing, and snuggle with our sweet little princess 3 days a week? That’s right…me, PJ! I am beyond excited to spend this time with her. Some of my fondest memories as a child were those days spent with my grandmothers, and it is my hope that our sweet girl will have those memories of us together!
You may be wondering why the photo of my secretary? Stay with me for a moment…there are a couple of reasons! The plate that my DIL made me for Christmas with Ella Mae’s footprints is proudly displayed and…
…notice the book, ” Memories for my Grandchild.”
At a recent celebration of life for a lovely friend of mine, the minister spoke of a book that the family had found the day after my friend passed away. It was a book of her treasured memories written to her first grandchild. What a priceless gift left for her family and especially her grandchildren to cherish! Being the sentimental person I am, I knew I had to have one. I checked Amazon for something similar and found this one!
