Journaling through the Years

Good Day, friends......

Well......yesterday, it was Senior day at our church.  Seniors are honored for their achievement and each of them are given a new Bible on this day.   This year, a video was added......

The parents of the graduates, gathered photos of their child from when they were first born, all the way through their Senior year!!  

When I saw Tyler Thomison's name come up......I could feel the soft tears swelling up in my eyes.   The second picture is what did it for me.......


I clearly remember the day that we hauled this old Casey Jones down to the Photographer's studio, knowing full well that every single picture taken......was going to a favorite!!!

Yep......I had to gently wipe away a few tears and try to disguise a few sniffs!    

How do the years pass by so quickly?  I do not know!!   Being the full-fledged grandmother that I am.......I am so thankful to have so many photos and journals, where I have recorded detailed memories of each grandchild's life!!    



I truly am so proud of the young man that Tyler has become!!


Graduation is June 6th.......I'll try not to bore you all between now and then, but I feel pretty sure that I'll have much more to say in the day's ahead......about this special guy in my life!!

Each of you are so special to me......who knows what I might be journaling about each of you and the friendships that I hold so dear!!!!

Hugs to you all.....

Hi Shug!

Oh my goodness, what a special time for you! I love, your header picture, I think it was my favorite of all the pictures you posted! The picture of him when is was little, by the "old Casey Jones", is adorable! So many memories!

I think it's wonderful that you have kept a journal and written wonderful thoughts and things your grandchildren did - it's something you can be very proud about, and something that your grandchildren will treasure!

This blog is your journal. . . please post anything you want to post!! We all love seeing and hearing about your grands!!

Hugs,
Barb

That photo in your header is awesome!!! Did you take that? Congratulations to your handsome grandson. I wish the growing up years didn't fly by so quickly. Looks like he is ready for the next chapter of his life. It's bittersweet, isn't it?
