Charlotte Grace meets Charlotte Grace
I need to take a video of these two together, it is absolutely precious to watch my grandparents with their newest great-grandchild. We named our daughter after this wonderful woman, whose laugh sounds like a bubbling brook, making those around her feel like brilliant comedians because she thinks everyone is adorably funny. She turns 83 in June and I am so blessed to have her sweet influence and faithful prayers covering me for my lifetime. Visits to "great grandma's house" are something to look forward to, with treats in the "surprise drawer" and a huge basement for running and jumping and playing with the pool balls. There is usually something delicious baking or cooking away in the oven, making the house smell cozy and warm.
I love that when we pull up in the driveway, odds are good that both precious grandparents are sitting in their chairs in the family room, not doing anything particular, and will welcome us in for a visit almost anytime.
Just so Great Grandpa doesn't feel left out, this occasion remains a highlight in my heart, what fun. We love you both!
