today my oldest grandson turned sixteen

he is a lovely young man and we’ve been able to spend a portion of our Fridays in the garden over the summer… I have really enjoyed having this time together…


took this shot on Sunday at his birthday party… I’d got him the newest Harry Potter book… he enjoys reading and we’ve both been fans since the first book came out… looking forward to reading it once he’s done…

all of a sudden he looks like a man, not a boy… his grandpa would be so proud of the kind young person he has become… 

the day he was born changed my life… in two ways… 

being a grandparent is by far one of the most amazing things that has happened to me… grandchildren are such a gift to be enjoyed and we’ve been privileged to have our grandkids here and be able to spend time with them on a regular basis since they’ve been born…

it also brought my daughter and I together… before he was born I was not one of her favourite people… we were connected, but her daddy was much more important to her… well, that never changed, lol…

I hadn’t been invited to the hospital as they prepared for the baby’s birth, and was waiting at home with baited breath to hear results of how they were doing and when the baby would be born…

then the phone rang, and my daughter was calling asking me to come to the hospital… from that moment we have had a much better relationship… 

so, this young man has been a gift in more ways than one…

what a wonderful sixteen years it has been… and how lucky am I…
