A Welcome Visit

 One of my Alaskan granddaughters, Leigha, came for a short visit and left today.. As a teenager she decided she wanted to be a geriatric nurse and has never wavered from that goal.  After 10 years of working and putting herself through nursing school, she will graduate this April.  I am so proud of her.

Because of unusual circumstances she and her brother  spent most of their early years with us and we became especially close.. .

But even though she is now a grown woman, educated and beautiful, every time I look at her I see her like this in my heart...my cheerful loving sweetheart.

She had an older brother, Aaron, (on the right). 

This was the last time we were all together and just before I rode my bike off the mountain.
I wish he could have been here this week also.

Even though he has grown into my ginger-haired gentle giant, every time I look at him now this is how I see him in my heart.

There is something so special about grandchildren...

We also had our Granson living with us from age 14 until he went off to University, he is here with us for Christms and we love him dearly. What a wonderful choice of career your Grand daughter has chosen, she must be lovely.
Thankyou for all of your great posts throughout the year, they inspire me when I flag.
Keep them up for 2018, I should miss you if you were not there.
