Happy Birthday dear Angie!

Six years ago yesterday, I became a Nana for the very first time. I was so excited and anxious about what that would really feel like. I had heard many others talk about how great it was to be a Grandmother, but I could only imagine it up until this point.
It was amazing, it had been a long hard night for Amy in the hospital and we had all been up for the whole night, still when the Doctor delivered little Angie, I couldn't believe my eyes. I had a Granddaughter, she was beautiful and amazing all wrapped up in one. When I held her, it felt a lot like when I held her Mother for the first time, it's an incredible feeling
To me Angie looks a lot like her Mom, only with red hair.
Like her Mom and Nana, she is comfortable with a paintbrush in her hands, actually a crayon, marker or pencil too. She loves to draw and create, interesting how that happens? :)
She is fun, wild, sweet, strong willed, and has a big heart. It has been a treat to watch her grow up. What an amazing person she is already. I feel grateful to have more time to spend with her, and our other two Grandchildren, and make memories with them! Yes life is good, real good!
Happy Birthday to our Angie girl!
"Surely, two of the most satisfying experiences in life must be those of being a grandchild or a grandparent." ~Donald A. Norberg

The day that you arrived
I knew right from the start
You’d be the little girl
That would win my heart
You’re my little treasure
You mean so much to me
Happy Birthday Granddaughter
With much love to you from me!
