Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and grandchildren. ~Deuteronomy 4:9
How can I even begin to describe the memorable times we have spent with granddaughter, Virginia, and other family members over these last two weeks? Blessed beyond measure is a start, but even that cannot convey the joy of our days together. And honestly, the time flies by so quickly while Virginia is with us, I find myself wishing with all my heart that I could stop its flight or, at least, slow it down.
Photos will have to do for a freeze frame, though. Before I get into our specific adventures and experiences over the last several weeks, I'm going to share some pictures of Virginia that we took. She certainly has grown and matured since last fall. It's hard to believe she will be turning 12 later this month - talk about time flying! Enjoy!
When we finally have to say good-bye a week ago Monday, I say to Virginia, "I wish we were starting out our time together all over again."
She hugs me and says, "I do too, Gammie. It was the best time ever!"
(More adventures to come! Stay tuned!)
