BIRTHDAYS CAN BE SPECIAL BECAUSE OF GRANDCHILDREN.
It was my birthday on January 14th 2010. I am now 64. Can you remember wishing for your 18th birthday or your 21st birthday? I can. Did I wish away all those years? I hope not.
My birthday began with Noah, my 8 year old grandson running into my room and wishing me a happy birthday. I almost forgot but he was so excited. So sweet. After he left for school, I had so many birthday wishes from my friends on Team Christian Artists and Crafters at Etsy.com. I was so thrilled that everyone remembered and my special secret sister, Jacki, from ChristieCottage.etsy.com posted a special birthday wish on her blog which brought me many birthday wishes from people I never even met online. It was great!
Later on, my darling grandson Noah, came into my room with his hands behind his back and told me to close my eyes. When I was instructed to open them, Noah was holding a gift with a huge pink bow on top. My favorite color. The gift is a 5" silver pewter angel that is inscribed "grandma" another word for love. He picked it out all by himself. How can that be topped? What a great birthday!
