Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
girl young lady -- my first 'grand' -- will always hold a special place in my heart!
Just as I was geographically estranged from my own grandparents, DH and I aren't able to visit Sarah and her sister in Alabama as often as we'd like.
Still, it's been a privilege to witness Sarah evolve -- from a sassy little live wire, to a kind, soft-spoken coed ...
... mom's confidant
... dad's football buddy (War Eagle!)
... and most recently, 'Daniel's girl': someone who seems to have appreciated receiving a baby goat ('Olivia') for Valentines -- more so than roses!
Happy, happy birthday, Sarah! I hope all your new horizons are welcoming!
