I Love Your Face!

I was there the day you were born.  I watched your Mom all through labor with tears in my eyes because my baby was having a baby.  I remember how you felt in my arms the very first time I held you.  Everyone said it was "just gas" but I know you gave your first smile to your Grammy!  I remember singing to you "I love your face, Megan Grace" and how it would make you giggle.  I remember when it was time for you to go home from a visit with me and I would put my finger on the outside of the car window and you would put your finger in the same place from the inside.  I remember not only throwing kisses but hugs too!  I remember our tea parties for two---coloring Easter eggs---you helping me in the kitchen for Christmas dinner.  I remember the Christmas you sat in front of the fireplace and asked me to "take a movie" of you, then you proceded to give your heart to Jesus.  And yesterday I watched a very grown-up girl in a cap and gown receive her high school diploma, grinning from ear to ear.  Where did the time go?  In the blink of an eye it will be wedding dresses and baby showers, and God willing, I will hold my great-grandchild in my arms.  I love you Megan Grace, and I especially love your face.

  3. I remember when Megan was just a newborn and Dayna brought her into CBS for us all to ooh and aah over. She is a beautiful young lady and the best is yet to come for her. I expect more moments of oohing and aahing.

  4. I remember going to the hospital with you to visit Miss Megan when she had just arrived. Loved the love, hope & joy in your face as you held her close. I also remember several years of Christmas shopping with you as you made every attempt to fulfill Megan's Wish List!
    You are a wonderful Gramma and Megan is so blessed to have you in her life!

  5. We knew Megan before she was even born! We have loved her with you through prayer before, during and after her birth. What an amazing woman she is becoming with so many talents and gifts given to her by God Almighty. I offer a prayer here that she will use her gifts to glorify God as she becomes the woman our Lord desires her to be. I pray Colossians 1: 9-12 for her as a life prayer too. May your Grandma/Granddaughter connection grow stronger and more beautiful in the years to come. Amen
