Growing up I always knew what I wanted to be.
For me, a grandma was a perfect "job".
The job description would go something like this;
To be a grandma, you had to be a mother and
To be a mother, you had to be married.
Before you got married, you'd have to fall in love.
A daunting task, but I was determined.
Tom and I watched the induction of eight men
into the Football Hall of Fame.
(hang in there, I didn't fall off my topic)
These were men who played outstanding football
and were acknowledged
for all their years of efforts.
They each spoken about their humble beginnings
and recognized their families
for standing by them
during the hard times and the good times.
Back to my story...
I fell in love with Tom.
We got married.
We were blessed with two children,
Todd and Kimmy
And then they each had children!
That's when my "job" was fulfilled,
My humble beginnings are for another time.
Right now, I want to thank
Mark and Kimmy!
Your love for each other
and for me!
For being there through the
good times and the bad.
I couldn't of done it without all of you.
Being a grandma and having
grandchildren is so special.
I wanted to recognize and uplift each one!
I came up with a plan to do just that.
For the day of the week,
that they were born on,
I visibly, wear a symbol or color
to represent each of them.
On their day, I pray for them
through out the day,
Sometimes I mail or drop off small gifts.
This is our newest grandchild, Isaac.
Mister Blue Eyes!
Both mom and dad have brown eyes.
Three out of four grandparents have brown eyes.
Isaac has these beautiful, blue eyes.
I'm thinking they came from me!
That's how I came up with
wearing the color, Baby Blue
on Mondays, starting today!
(I waited until today ,
to make sure his eyes didn't change!)
Baby Blue Monday

I feel I have reached my Hall of Fame.
Blessed beyond what words can say.
I love my job!
