Out of the mouths of babes….

on October 31, 2014

This group of quotes for Gma’s birthday book does not need any explanation from me.






There are more quotes to come of course – from some of the bigger ‘kids’ – but I will save those for tomorrow night after the boat cruise. Suffice it to say that these children’s words, enclosed in her book (and rather brilliantly photographed by me – ha!) have culminated in the most beautiful, mutual, unshakable hug of family.

Oh, I can’t resist: here is Jared’s (Meg’s second grandchild):

    This 80th will have a thousand memories all wrapped up in one volume – and that’s not just the words and photos. It’ll be the spiritual memories of a very special lady and her loving family.

    How lucky she is.
