A Friend's Sweet New Baby Granddaughter...

My good friend Sandy became a grandmother for the first time last week. Addison came into this world with a grand entrance last Thursday evening. Sandy and her husband could not be more excited about the arrival of their beautiful granddaughter. I saw her Monday evening when our knitting group gathered, she was already hard at work knitting a sweet little pink hat for Addison. This weekend I asked her husband to send me a photo of Addison with her grandmother. What a perfect photo was sent. Look at this sweet gift from God, holding onto her grandma's finger. It's hard to believe that she is only 1 hour old in this photo. Have you ever seen a baby's eyes so wide open. I think she was just staring at her new grandma.
Well, what to do with the photo? I wanted to make a "Creation From My Heart" for my dear friend. Here is what I came up with... Addison was holding onto her grandma Sandy's hand, and I had the perfect poem for the gift bag..... GRANDMAS hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever... What a wonderful gift, a new grandchild. As one part of our life closes a new chapter begins... I also finished a special order from my Etsy shop for Susan. She also is a new grandmother to Benjamin. She sent me a photo and wanted a memory box using the photo of her new grandson. Isn't he sweet. Well the order is finished and boxed up ready to be mailed to her tomorrow. He looks so precious. How quickly he will grow. I love working on these projects. Once I get started, the time passes by so quickly. Each one of us is given a special gift. Isn't it wonderful when we are able to use that gift. It's amazing what you can do with it. Take the time to use the gifts that you have been blessed with! Wishing you a wonderful day.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4
