Gratitude Gala

I am going to do my Gratitude Gala post along with my photo of myself that I was tagged by Rhonda to post.
I am so grateful that I still have my grandmother with me and she still has a great mind. She is in the hospital right now and I am praying she recovers. The one photo is of the both of us when I was 4 or 5. The other is the photo is of me on the same day. Times were sweet then. I grew up going to visit my grandmother and staying over night. I would read Donna Parker, Cherry Ames, Vickie Barr, all those great old books. My sister and I loved to place dress up in the old clothes, AND buttons!! LOVED sorting the old buttons. I have such great childhood memories of both of my grandmothers. But I only have this one left. I hope to get around to everyones blog over the weekend, it has been a while and I miss everyone! Life has been busy lately. I guess when I think about it, I am doing exactly what I did when I was little girl, as a big girl for my real job. Yes, lots to be thankful for.

Hi, we've never name is bj and i just found your precious blog.
It warmed my heart to read how much you love your grandmother. And, how you enjoyed the time spent with her, as a little girl. I am a grandmother and I didn't have one growing up...both my g-mothers died before I was born. So, I always wanted to be an extra special grandmother to our 10 grandchildren. I love spending time with them, bonding and having fun. They spend the night with us a lot and we do have a grand time.
Come over to see me sometime....
