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...
