My first-ever gift for my youngest Grandchild is on its way today! You see, there was a rift in our family about eight years ago, and my son decided he didn't want to be a part of our family. His siblings, father and I have been estranged from him and his family all this time. We have only been able to keep in touch with his oldest daughter, since she is now out of the house and on her own as a young adult.
Not too long ago, my Daughter-In-Law contacted me and wished to reconnect. It was an answer to many years of prayer.
We last saw two of the other three girls when they were one and three, or thereabouts. They don't remember us. But, the youngest, the curly, redheaded Munchkin...well, we have never met. She is turning five on Monday! And this Grandma is so excited to be sending off a package to her (and her sisters)!
Here she is, blowing us kisses! And, I am blowing some right back!
