I have been a Gramma for almost 8 years and it has been the best experience of my life! I remember the day she was born--amazing! I couldn't believe the joy I felt at being part of this new little person's life!
My granddaughter lives about 6 1/2 hours from me and when she was born I committed to visit her every 3 months. I have visited 30 times in almost 8 years; only missing two regular visits! When I "retired" in June of 2010, I started spending a whole week with my granddaughter twice a year plus two long weekend visits each year.
This week I have been visiting my granddaughter and we have had a great time! We went shopping, played table games, watched movies, made cards and enjoyed each other immensely! Tomorrow morning I will walk her to the bus stop, write a note to leave on her bed and drive home with tears in my eyes.
While I would love to have more grandchildren, I am very thankful to have one! She is amazing! If you're a grandparent, you know what I'm talking about!
Tomorrow will be the letter H so I hope you will stop by to see what I do for that letter. The only letter I am having trouble with for this week is J. Any ideas?
Have a great day!
