Are you enjoying this day? We have a “Seattle” day today here. (Your grandpa forgot how pretty and refreshing this place is when it rains.) Yep … got home safe and sound from my meeting yesterday. Spent a lot of time in my car seat. It was dark time getting home.
M, right now you are a “little one” … before we know it you will be a “little girl” … then a “young lady” … a “young woman” … a “lady” … a beautiful woman … (yep like your mom) … of all the values that are passed your way … these words are the only ones from the 31st … it is a whole bunch of words … a whole bunch of thoughts about being a “ruby woman” … a ruby is a precious jewel … (perhaps your mom can show you one) … soon your grandpa will get your one … it is a reminder that you are a treasure … your are precious … noble … (your grandpa likes that word) … M, my prayer is that you will be a woman with “eager hands” … have hands that create … arms that help the poor and needy … makes clothes and coverings … (yep … like afghans and blankets … even stuff with M&M’s on it) … “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. (Giggle, grin, laugh and smile a lot M.) She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and is not idle. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.) … applauded … cheered … celebrated.
You can do it!
Love you little one,
