Happy Birthday My Girl
Today a very special girl, our first granddaughter, turns eight. I looked through all my photos to find a picture that captures her personality and this was the one I came up with. Miss S is on the right with Miss F on the left; this was taken on our snowshoeing trip in February. Miss S loves her family and spending time with her cousins, especially Miss F. For some strange reason, this photo was crisp and clear on Picasa but when I transferred it here, it became a bit fuzzy. I know that many of you could tell me why and usually I don't have this problem.
Although our girl is just eight, she is beyond her years in maturity. She is a constant help to her mom with the other children in the family, loves to read and also to cook. Her favorite game right now is Monopoly-the adult version but any game she'll play, including Dutch Blitz.
I know that she will have an incredible adventure through the years and I can't wait to see her continue to grow and mature. She loves to point out that she is nearly as tall as I am; that doesn't say much because I am only 5'2". She is brilliant and giving, tender and sweet. We took her to the Hockey game, with her dad, on Sunday night and yesterday she called to tell her Papa thank you. Today, we are getting lots of snow-not the 12" that were predicted but still enough; I know she will have fun with her family staying inside playing games. Tonight she has Rock Climbing, if it isn't cancelled. Her birthday celebration will occur on Friday evening; we celebrate her birthday with her sisters-our Peanut will turn six this week. It is such a joy to see them share their party and not fuss over having separate ones.
We love you dear S and wish the Lord's blessings upon you! May He guide you every day of your life.
xxxooo Papa and Nana
I hope you all have a blessed Tuesday and make every day count-we never know when our journey will end.
