You celebrate each milestone, each birthday, holiday, each year in school, learning to drive, the first date, and soon there comes someone into their life, you can tell. You see them getting closer, making memories between them; they want to share their life with that person. Weddings to celebrate their coming together as one, a new phase of life for them and you.

Donny and I are Grandparents! Holding that sweet little person in my arms so fresh and new from Our Father in Heaven was truly a tender mercy of God. How did this happen, time has moved so quickly. Too fast and yet life in its plan continues. Five generations of women living. This woman, feeling so inadequate at times feels the love of My Father, confirming to me he is there and is aware of me.
The growing belly
Before all the hard work
Yes, they were all there

Dad & Mom - Joy!
This is the next day, now my birthday.
I am a Grandma!!
