Happy Birthday Greeting Stone

Happy Birthday Engraved Stones

When you get older, you look forward to grandchildren. Of course, you can’t wait to give them clever birthday greetings and gifts for all occasions. Grandkids bring more joy than just about anything.  Recently, my newest granddaughter was born.  She was very precious, but all she did was sleep and feed with her eyes closed.  Occasionally, she cried, but that was to be expected.  And then it happened.  She opened her eyes for the first time.  I don’t think she could see well, but she looked so pretty with her eyes opened.

Subsequently, she began to follow us with her eyes.  One of the first things she could actually see was grandma and grandpa.  When we returned from Seattle, we got to visit with our older grandchildren on the East coast.  One is 13 and the other is 10.  As we learn more about their achievements, it makes us very proud.  They are very successful in school and both enjoy playing the piano.  We watch as they mature and become more accomplished at everything.  But the great thing about grandchildren, is that you enjoy them, but you get to give them back.
