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.....
