Although I do not have a card to share, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my own grandmother today. Here is one of my favorite photos, that is proudly displayed in our home. I have such loving memories of my Grandma Frances. Not only was she a beautiful woman, but she was incredibly kind-hearted and always full of love. She gave the best hugs, too! I miss her so much! I remember all of the wonderful times I spent with her and will never forget the lessons she taught me. I can still smell Sunday dinners cooking in her kitchen and have fond memories of our times together as a family. A couple of weeks ago, I came upon a Lily of the Valley scented candle and it instantly brought me back to Grandma's garden back in Upstate New York. It's funny how a scent can evoke such a memory. That made the quote for Linda's blog hop that much more meaningful for me:
"A garden of love grows in a Grandmother's heart" - Author Unknown
Grandmother's are a wonderful gift and a blessing to cherish! I wish I had the opportunity to tell both of my Grandma's how much I love them today. Sadly, they have both passed on, but their memories live on every single day. Congratulations to you, Linda on the upcoming arrival of your new grand-baby! Enjoy every moment with that sweet bundle of joy, my friend! :)
Please stop by the rest of the gals on the hop to see their creations, OR to simply share their memories...all to celebrate Linda!
