The reason I chose this photo as my entry has two levels... On the surface, I am grateful for these beautiful babies; grateful to be their "gammie." They are sweet, adorable, precious gifts from GOD - my treasures. On a deeper level, due to some challenges in our family during the past 14 months, relations between me and my children have, at times, been strained and time spent together as a family has been few and far-between. On the night I took this photo, my three youngest kids - J, Jenni and Matthew, my son-in-law, Ivory and the grandbabies, Amelia and Adrian, all met together for dinner; for Jenni & Ivory to meet their new nephew, who was 9 days old at the time, and to hand out gifts they had picked up during their recent Caribbean cruise. Unexpectedly (though I firmly believe it was a "GOD thing"), I was in the neighborhood and able to stop in to say "Hi." I only expected to be able to stay for a few minutes, but actually spent an hour and a half with my beloved family -- a blessed gift that truly filled me with GRATITUDE...
