who i see (sooc)...

grandparents day 2009. my daughter pays her 95 year old great-grandmother a visit. she brings her very own groovy girl doll. grandma doesn't want to accept it...she doesn't want to take away the child's doll. but my daughter insists. so grandma accepts. as usual, grandma exclaims, "it's not a doll. it's a pretty little girl" and gives her pretty little groovy girl a most welcoming hug.















grandma takes a moment to stop and smell the flowers my daughter hand picked for her from the garden.













time will not erase the child inside. grandma tries on her bottle cap ring. here comes the bride.













grandma is happy. she is not forgotten. she tells hubby that our daughter is the only grandchild who gives her gran-gran anything. celebrating great-grandmothers.

the end.

Her hands are so lovely, Se'Lah!!

I miss my grandmother's hands...

She always had her nails painted so beautifully and the prettiest shade of pink we have since dubbed 'Grandma Pink' because it takes two different polishes to get there!

Cherish those moments, little one.
You are part of her legacy.
