Last week I received this photograph via email from the newest little "out of towner" in the family. I first told you about Shaye on October 19 when I attended the baby shower of my great niece. When I saw this picture I asked Tammy (Mommy) for the publishing permission.
What a doll. I wonder what wonderful surprises await this little child. Will she be a pianist like Mommy? It's entirely possible, since she has heard the piano played close to her heart since her heart started to beat. Will she love to read? Ah that too is a great possibility since Mommy loves to read and already she has books of her own. Will she love to be on her hands and knees in her garden? It's quite likely since she will be on her knees helping her grandma pull weeds. Or maybe she'll love to soar high in the skies like her Daddy? Maybe she'll love animals since she'll spend plenty of time with her cousins on the farm.
The first generation nieces and nephews have stopped arriving and now we are moving on to the next generation.
It's just so much fun . . watching and wondering what life will hold for them. They are all so sweet and energetic and they all hold futures full of promise.
My beloved Mr. T and I ran (not literally .. . .we went in his truck) to Tim Horton's this morning for a bagel and coffee and I was already thinking of this mornings post. Often now my dear man looks and me and wonders why I'm smiling . . and then we talk about my thoughts on the daily post. How sweet is that? He listens and offers a thought or two.
Well, because I don't have ample opportunity to see this little "out of towner" . . I can't share all her latest tricks and I don't even know the sound of her giggle. Her smile I have seen and yes it is a winner. I've cuddled her and known her softness and sweet baby smell.
. . The Bible says in Mark 10 verse 16 . . "Then He (Jesus) took the children into his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them".
That verse my "sweet girly girl" Shaye is for you.
