Growing Up Before Our Eyes . . .

AMANDA


my granddaughter
turned 18 a few days ago


it seems only yesterday
she was my little
wide eyed
baby doll
granddaughter
with beautiful
white blond hair
pink skin
who
loved
playing
with her dolls
and
playing
dress up
too



now she is a
 high school senior
playing prom and party dress up
with a caring heart
and enjoying
crazy fun times
with her friends


she enjoys her family
and has always
been such a helper
for mom and dad at home
. . .
although
she would rather be
snow skiing
and
tubing
and
enjoying the lake instead











a mission trip last year
with her church group
was a meaningful experience
amanda fell in love with the children
and learned a great deal about
how others live their life






it looks like culinary arts
will be her school path for next year
 happy birthday amanda
and remember
granny up north
is ready for dinner
whenever you are

~ ~ ~

may the sun shine
all day long
everything go right
and nothing go wrong
may those you love
bring love back to you
and may all of your wishes
you wish
come true
~
an irish blessing
just for you
love
granny

Amanda is gorgeous. She looks so much like her mother and has a tad bit of Suzie in her!

Your granddaughter is a beautiful young woman, Lynne. You have a right to be proud of her!

Hi
amanda - How does it feel to be featured on a blog ? I imagine your gram is so very proud of you and rightly so.
I have a granddaughter, and she is graduating this year, too.
All my best wishes to you and your brother in the coming years !
