My granddaughter's 5th Birthday

Here is the birthday girl. She had a wonderful day and I just love the look of wonderment on her face. Her birthday is always a bittersweet time for me. She was born just 3 1/2 weeks before the Lord took my mother home. So we felt like we gained one and lost one. I am sure that mom looked down from heaven and smiled on her birthday girl.

Her is the birthday girl's daddy and my son. I am very proud of him. He is truly a good daddy and godly man. And mommy is just as good a mommy and godly woman.

This is my granddaughter's maternal grandma. Because there were several family members missing this time and not as many people I was able to spend some wonderful one on one time fellowshipping with my friend. It was a delightful visit and we were even able to discuss our reading "The Shack". That was fun to discuss our ideas and take on the book! Jana is truly a beautiful, genuinely unpretentious person.

The day was wonderful even though we had a 2 hour delay in traffic on the way home as a drunk driver caused a serious but NOT fatal accident on the Hood Canal Bridge. Another time I am glad that I did not give in to any negative feelings and stay home!!! My family is much too important!
